Poetry Live!

At the beginning of March, Mrs Tingey organised an educational visit to this year’s Poetry Live! tour at Manchester Bridgewater Hall for Year 11.

Students had the rare opportunity to see the famous poets, from their very own GCSE Poetry Anthology, perform and take questions.

As well as listening to Simon Armitage, Carol Ann Duffy and John Agard recite their work, the students were also able to pick up top tips on how to approach the GCSE ‘unseen’ poetry question from one of the top examiners from the AQA exam board.

The students certainly learned a lot to support them in their summer examinations.
