Dignioras awarded

Congratulations to Sarah Macleod and Phoebe Bolton who have both been awarded dignioras for English.

Sarah compared the poems of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon in a mini essay style and produced a GCSE level response. Her contextual knowledge of the poets was impressive and her analysis of their work as a whole was outstanding.

Phoebe compared the poems of Wilfred Owen and Jessie Pope with at least one poem that had not been studied in class and was able to analyse and evaluate the methods by both writers to express their own experience of World War One. The essay showed great maturity and a level of understanding well beyond this level.

Well done to both pupils.
