Extra Curricular Activity

Senior Creative Writing Group

The Senior Creative Writing Group is open to all Senior School students. We read and workshop each other’s writing, attend readings, set creative writing challenges for each other and send work out to competitions.

Help is also given to students preparing a portfolio of work if applying to Queens for Creative Writing with English. You don't need to be studying A-level English to join!

Teacher in Charge:  Ms Boyle

Takes place weekly in Ms Kelly's room.

Senior English Extra-Curricular sessions for 2019/20:


Every Tuesday in English 2, immediately after school, is a Senior English Literature Group - one week doing 'Creative Reading' - focusing on how to approach an unseen poem and developing confidence in this - and the following week 'Creative Writing'. Students will be given opportunities to attend readings and events outside of school. and in some cases to read their own work in public settings. The group is facilitated by Ms Boyle.

The schedule of meetings for the first term of 2019 is:
