Year 10 and 11 Poetry Live! visit

Last Monday, Year 10 and 11 pupils travelled to Birmingham Symphony Hall to attend a Poetry Live! event which provided pupils with an excellent opportunity to see and hear from the range of poets whose work is studied in their GCSE English Literature course.

Pupils watched performances from Simon Armitage, Gillian Clarke, Carol-Ann Duffy and a number of other famous poets. Pupils particularly enjoyed the lively and entertaining recitals from Daljit Nagra and John Agard.

Chief Examiners also gave helpful advice to pupils on how best to approach the unseen poetry question in the GCSE English Literature examination. All pupils enjoyed the informative and engaging visit.
