Year 11 students at Kesteven and Sleaford High School took part in National Poetry Day celebrating poetry as well as devoting time to the requirements of their poetry examination.

Published poet Ross Sutherland visited the school to perform some of his work and spent the morning talking to students about poetry, literature and meaning. The Times included Ross on its list of Britain’s Top Ten Literary Stars.

The afternoon was dedicated to the examination poetry cluster ‘Relationships’ which all Year 11 students are writing about in the summer exams.
