Congratulations to the 28 pupils who were selected for the Poetry Recital Competition Final on Tuesday 26 March at the Prep. We were delighted to welcome Teresa Holcomb to adjudicate the event, an American born comedian who has performed stand-up and improvisation comedy in California, appearing numerous times on television. Teresa is passionate about the arts and literature and works closely with schools and businesses. She is also famed for her fabulous improvisation workshops and gigs throughout the south west.

All pupils at the Prep learnt a poem this term within the themes of Family for the Lower Prep, Journeys for the Middle Prep and Conflict for the Upper Prep. The best recitals were selected in each year group and the finalists all performed extremely well, with winners selected by Teresa for Lower, Middle and Upper Prep and overall audience enjoyment.
