A small but dedicated band of poetry enthusiasts gathered at Woldgate College to celebrate some of the best poetry ever written and to watch the school round of the National ‘Poetry By Heart’ competition.

The winner of the competition was awarded the coveted place in the regional competition. She will be reading three poems at York Explore Library on 7 February at 2pm. The winner of this round will travel to the National Finals in London in March.

The evening was a great opportunity for students and teachers to share their favourite poems and write some of their own. There are two other poetry competitions coming soon to Woldgate, and also the Radio 2 500 words creative writing competition for Key Stage 3 students.
