Choosing the next Poet Laureate at King’s High

Could you be the next Simon Armitage (Poet Laureate) or Kathleen Jamie (Scottish Makar)? 

Our Sixth Form-led Lit & Phil Society have launched their exciting ‘KS3 & KS4 Poet Laureate Initiative’.  Everyone will have the opportunity to elect two Laureates from our youngest pupils, who will write and present poems on special occasions. The first step in the application process is for pupils to write a 300-word poem in reponse to ‘What goes unsaid?, and describe why they would be right for the role.
