Year 11 Celebrate Poetry

Year 11 English students from Leicester High School for Girls had a fantastic day at the GCSE Poetry Live event at the Royal and Derngate Theatre in Northampton.

The event featured beautiful readings from Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, Carol Ann Duffy, Daljit Nagra, and Imtiaz Dharker, holding our students' attention with their inspiring words.

Additionally, our students had two informative sessions with the Chief Examiner for AQA, who shared effective strategies for responding to poetry in exams.

Head of English, Mrs Kate Penney, said, “This experience left our Year 11 students feeling inspired and better prepared for their upcoming GCSE English exams.”

Leicester High School for Girls remains dedicated to providing educational opportunities, nurturing our students' love for literature and academic success.
