Local MP Impressed with Our Get Creative Exhibition

In February we launched the ‘Get Creative’ writing and art competition for pupils in Years 5 and 6 from local primary schools (Alveley, Claverley, Highley, Morville, St John’s and St Leonard’s) and our Year 7 pupils to enter with the chance for six main winners to win Kindle electronic readers. The pupils were set two challenges – to write an adventure story of no more than 500 words and design a front cover for their story. To read the full story, please click here.
