500 Words House Competition Winners

Mrs L Fox, Literacy Leader. writes:

On Thursday 5th March, students gathered in the LRC to await the results of the competition that was launched at the beginning of February. This competition was for budding writers to complete an original short story of 500 words or less.

We had a range of entries from Year 7 through to Year 10, demonstrating the creative skill and passion of our students. The storylines were extremely diverse, ranging from vegetable superheroes to killer diseases.

While we were waiting to find out the bronze, silver and gold winners, students and teachers were tense with anticipation. There were dramatic readings of the winning stories by members of staff, for everyone to enjoy and appreciate.

The winners were:


Gold Taylor Ward, 7A read by Mrs Fox
Silver Enzo Varhelyi, 7A read by Ms Wilson
Bronze Ihsan Uddin, 7A read by Mr O’Connor


Gold Keziah Long, 10A read by Mr Bishop
Silver Ruby Wilkinson, 10K read by Mrs James
Bronze Reece Ogeer-Ali, 9BM read by Mr Maidment

Congratulations to the winners and thank you again to all of the students who entered the competition.

Mrs Armitage, Ms Wilson and I were very proud and privileged to see the talent we have at Stanborough.
