Annual Poetry Competition

Annual Poetry Competition

The theme of this year’s Hampshire School Chelsea poetry competition was “Dreams” and pupils in all year groups, from Nursery to the Senior pupils, took part. We were delighted to have Suzy Dixon, Head of the renowned Francis Holland Junior school in Sloane Square, come in to judge our annual competition, this year. She played  an incredible role in feeding back to every contestant with warmth, practical advice and genuine encouragement. 

Held in the beautiful and historic Chelsea library, The competition is divided into two sections - performance poetry from a published poet and a written poem by the pupils on the designated theme of “Dreams”. 

In line with the inclusive ethos of the school, every pupil wrote their own poem and had it displayed on the competition day in the library and all were encouraged to take part if they wished.  The standard was extremely high, with Nursery performing William Wordsworth’s famous poem “Daffodils” to Year Seven and Eight pupils performing Shakespeare monologues. 

It was wonderful to have parents in to school to see their children perform and display their talent at composing their own poems.

It was a vibrant and celebratory morning of creativity. We thank Suzy Dixon and all the pupils for their incredible contributions.
