Poetry By Heart National Final
Following a superb performance and win by former Prep pupil Charlie S in the Senior School Poetry by Heart competition with The Sleepy Giant by Charles E Carryl, a video of Charlie’s recitation was submitted to the national competition in the Poetry Celebration category.
The English department are thrilled to announce that Charlie came in the top 10 of the national finalists! The judges gave warm praise commenting “This is a really confident and delightfully eccentric performance which fitted the poem brilliantly. You paced it well and we loved the way you used your voice to convey the size and character of the giant”
With no overall winner, just the top ten recitations selected, this really is an outstanding achievement and delightful for Charlie to be recognised at a national level. Charlie moved to Senior from Prep last year and we are very proud of his achievement!Back to all news
