    Poetry by Heart

    Congratulations to all of the finalists!



    On 19 October we had our Poetry by Heart final. Audience members were greeted at the start of the evening with jazz provided by four Year 13 students and drinks from the CASCA bar. Then finalists from Years 7-13 recited their poems to an audience of staff, parents and students. Winners in each category were selected by our guest panel of judges – novelist Charlotte Mendelson, Professor of English at UCL John Mullan and our poet in residence Jane Duran.

    It was a very closely fought competition with many excellent entries.  Congratulations to all of the finalists!
