Year 7 and 8 Writing Challenge

The annual RWS500 competition is completed by Year 7 and 8 students. The task is to consider something topical that they have enjoyed reading (it could be anything from a newspaper, magazine, book – fiction or non-fiction or on the internet).

Students then explain what they have discovered that they did not know, would be interesting to their friends, and would be valuable for society at large (parents, teachers, employers, politicians, etc.) to be aware of and why?

Students write 500 words and submit their entry to Ms Spence headteacher. The entries are then shortlisted to 8 students, who join Ms Spence for a Seminar lunch with one of the School governors to discuss their writing. In 2019 there were 262 entries.

The winning entries from 2018 and 2019 can be read and listened to using the links below.
