Poetry Live - London

On Friday 8th December 26 lucky Year 11 students will be travelling to London to see a variety of poets such as Carol Ann Duffy (current Poet Laureate), Simon Armitage,  Gillian Clarke, John Agard, Owen Sheers, Imtiaz Dharker - to name only a few! They will perform and discuss their work, along with some Chief Examiners who will give an exam-centred perspective. Students will have a chance to explore how they might deal with unseen poems, discuss some suggested ideas on how to compare poems from the cluster, and have the fantastic opportunity to ask the poets directly some questions about their poems!

Students should remember to meet at 8.30am in the Hall Friday, bring a packed lunch and snacks, and of course their Poetry Anthology!
