Year 10 & 11 Trip to Poetry Live! – Birmingham Town Hall

The English Department were pleased to take a group from Year 10 and 11 to hear poets from the Power & Conflict cluster read and discuss their poetry. Poets included; Simon Armitage, Carol Ann Duff, John Agard and Imitaz Dharker. We were also able to listen to an English Literature chief examiner explain some of the most effective ways to approach unseen poetry. “I enjoyed listening to John Agard as his delivery was really engaging” – Jenny, Yr10.
Mrs Green will make her notes from the sessions available to all students in Year 10 & 11.
