Studley High School students write rap poetry during lockdown

Harry Leach 28th Jun, 2020

STUDENTS and staff at Studley High School have been getting creative during lockdown by writing poetry.

The school ran a poetry competition giving participants a chance to express their feelings on the pandemic.

Deputy head teacher, Amy Page, said: “We were delighted to receive so many entries for the poetry competition and the quality of writing was impressive.

“This competition has provided our young people with an opportunity to express themselves, to regain a sense of community and feel connected when we have been physically separated for so long, which is so important to us.”

One of the winners in the competition was Jacob Tagg who did a rap poem.

All the poems will be collated in an anthology.
