Our Students were able to meet some very exciting guests during the Wessex Schools Litfest, an annual event which takes place over two weeks in the Summer term.  The following events were enjoyed by our students this year:

  • Author talks and workshops with Alex Bell, Stewart Foster and Dan Freedman
  • Illustration workshops with  Simon Chadwick
  • Poetry Workshops with Matt West, Southampton's Poet Laureate
  • Book Art workshops with Tory Allen from Tidal Arts
  • Comedy writing workshops with Mike Vaughan
  • Book -v- film evening - Wonder

Some of our students had the opportunity of taking part in the judging of the Hampshire Book Award.  We were also given the chance to meet authors Holly Smale and Katy Birchall.  Two of our Year 9 students took part in an amazing Poetry Slam event and met the UK Poetry Slam champion, Usaama Minhas.  A very exciting year!
