Paul Cookson Visit

Paul Cookson, the renowned poet visited our school to deliver workshops and work with pupils in every class, inspiring them to write poetry of their own. Paul performed has own works and led classes in composing their own. We also held a book sale of his works after school where he signed copies and chatted with parents and pupils.

His visit was well received by staff and pupils alike and has inspired us to look at publishing our own book of poetry so watch out for updates!
