Find your voice!

Take part in our POETRY COMPETITION! Lots of different categories! Top prizes! 

Here’s your chance to express yourself on the theme of Looking Forward in our great, Ebor Academy Trust-wide poetry competition!

All of us are looking forward to a life without restrictions, free from the Coronavirus cloud that has cast such a long shadow for such a long time.

We want children and young people across all our schools-and their families, and our staff-to find their voice. Explore the impact of saying a lot in a few words. Write a poem that explains how you feel about looking ahead to happier times. It can be long or short, it doesn’t have to rhyme-it just needs to be optimistic and forward looking!
