Successful Launch of Year 9 Anthology

As part of Year 9’s study in English, they took part in a creative writing competition which gave them the opportunity to become published authors through Amazon’s Young Storyteller initiative. Some of the most dynamic pieces of writing have been published in our anthology, ‘Queensbridge Creations’ which is available to buy on Amazon. All proceeds will go to Queensbridge and The National Literacy Trust.

We celebrated pupils’ superb achievements in becoming published authors in an event on Friday 16th June by listening to selected readings from the anthology, along with a celebration of some new artwork that has been created by our Community Art Project for our dynamic new library space. These pieces were designed to explore the themes in the Gen Z books that pupils across school are reading and using to study the PSHE curriculum. Visitors and pupils all enjoyed listening to the gripping writing, whilst enjoying a cupcake and a cuppa!
