On Tuesday evening an audience of parents and staff were lucky enough to hear twenty-one pupils from Reception - Form 7 recite their chosen poem at the Great Ballard Poetry Evening.
This annual event is a highlight of the English Department’s year. The pupils performed brilliantly, with confidence, flair and lots of expression.
The Judge – Mrs Rebecca Thomas-Snell - who is Head of English at Portsmouth Grammar school praised the pupils’ performances highly, commending them on their preparation and enthusiasm.
Each pupil received a certificate of achievement for being a finalist but the first prize winners were: Eva, Joseph, Daisy, Theo, Olivia, Rosa, Milly and Eva. - Mrs Thomas
