The current covid restrictions did not deter the Prep School from holding their annual poetry competition this year – it simply took place online rather than in the Great Room! Pupils were tasked with finding and preparing a poem about school to recite in front of their class teachers. From there, a class finalist was chosen and each finalist performed for the judges, Mrs Attenborough and Mrs McChesney.
