ENGLISH: University of Warwick Partnership

Caludon students from Years 7 to 12 have been participating in a partnership with the University of Warwick English department since the autumn term.

With the support of student tutors from the university, they have read, written and discussed a range of texts around the theme of dystopia and have made fantastic contributions to every session. All of the students should be proud of their great effort and enthusiasm.

I’d like to offer a special congratulations to Rose Kandala (Year 7), Ira Tonogbanua (Year 9) and Simran Rakkar (Year 12) who were shortlisted as finalists for their creative writing on the theme of dystopia.

Rose was the overall winner in the Year 7-8 category out of all of the schools who took part in the project, which is a huge achievement.

These three students took part in a celebration event at the university this week, enjoying a tour of the campus, a poetry writing workshop (led by a lecturer in creative writing) and a prize giving with Professor Emma Mason, Head of English and Comparative Literary Studies at Warwick. Well done to everyone!
