It’s great to see that we’ve had a record number of applications for Summer 2021 Work Experience from Years 10-13, with students and parents looking ahead to the future despite the difficult times.
Whereas other schools only offer a set week, at Bosworth Academy we give our students the option of choosing any one of 4 weeks in the summer holiday, meaning that students are much more likely to receive their first choice placement.
LEBC will soon be emailing students who have applied to check their availabilty. The designated weeks are as follows:
w/c 12/7/21 w/c 19/7/21 w/c 26/7/21 w/c 2/8/21
Please can you discuss at home and let LEBC know which week or weeks the student would be available for a one week placement by returning the email. Please ensure these dates are accurate as it may be difficult to make changes later.
About the Competition
The Tower Poetry Competition offers the UK’s most valuable prize for young poets, and is open to students between 16-18 years of age who are educated in the UK. The competition is run by Christ Church college, Oxford.
The competition is judged anonymously by two judges, who are different each year, and Peter McDonald, the current Christopher Tower Student. Each year the theme is chosen with the intention of giving entrants free rein to interpret it as widely as they like.
The competition is free to enter, and offers a top prize of £3000. Schools of prizewinners are awarded an additional £150, intended for investment in further study of poetry and literature.
How to Enter
The 21st Christopher Tower Poetry Competition, the UK’s most valuable prize for young poets, has opened for entries, and this year students between 16-18 years of age are challenged to write a poem on the theme of ‘The Key’.
The closing date for entries is noon on 1 March 2021.
Winners will be notified on 25 March 2021.
