Standards were very high this year at the Wessex Schools Literary Festival Poetry Slam Competition at Romsey School. Isaac Burnham Year 7 came second, which at his debut performance, beating some much more experienced competitors was a high achievement! Lily Wiseman Year 9 came third maintaining her excellent competition record. Noadswood was placed second overall and was commended for our humour, originality and performance by Matt West Southampton’s Children’s Poet Laureate who hosted the evening and ran the workshops. For enthusiasm and confidence building in our young performers thanks as always to Mr Wyatt’s inspirational Creative Writing Club.
