Sir William Borlase's Grammar School

Poetry by Heart Competition

Year 8 student selected as the Buckinghamshire champion in Poetry competition

We reported in the last newsletter that Year 8’s Savannah Mason was selected as the school’s Key Stage 3 Poetry by Heart Champion, for her performances of Wordsworth’s A Complaint and Carol-Ann Duffy’s Originally. We then submitted videos of her performances to the national competition (we are only allowed to enter one student from years 7-9) to be judged first against champions from other schools in Buckinghamshire, and then on a national basis. On 21st April we were delighted to learn that not only had Savannah been selected as the Buckinghamshire champion, she had been chosen as one of 10 students from all over the country to compete in the national final which will be held at the Globe Theatre in July. 

Good luck Savannah!
