GCSE Poetry Live

On Tuesday 28th February, year 10 and 11 students went on a trip to the Alexandra Theatre to see GCSE Poetry Live. During the day we heard some fantastic poetry from established poets, including the likes of John Agard, Grace Nichols and Owen Sheers. We were able to ask questions and interact with the poets, who were able to give their answers, thoughts and reflections in an erudite way – something we cannot do on a normal school day. We were also lectured on how to answer questions from an unseen text. Overall, it was a very enjoyable day for everyone involved and it gave us an insight into the world of poetry.
