Young Writers Success

Every year, as a school, Felpham Community College enters the ‘Young Writer’s’ Key Stage 3 and 4 competition.

The creative writing competition this year was entitled ‘Twisted Tales-Amazing Adventures’. In total, across the UK, there were 19,000 entries submitted and FCC were delighted to have 11 students successfully selected to have their work published in an anthology of work.

Students were awarded a ‘Talent for Writing’ certificate by the Young Writers in recognition of their entries, and the editor of Young Writers, Wendy Laws also gave her personal congratulations to our students for their great entries. They will be able to purchase their own copy of the anthology from the 1st April.

Well done to the following students: Albert Dewey, Reece Bevan, Max Broad, Annalise Towse, Scarlett Whittle, Grace Hill, Jacob Miles, Teddy Mackley, Dylan Woods, Katy Pilling and Jennifer Robson.

Mr Castle, Teacher of English commented:

“The students worked really hard and their stories were brilliant, we are really proud of the work they have produced and the level of imagination and skill they have shown. Well done to everyone who entered and particularly those who have had their entries selected for publication – a brilliant achievement!”
