Modern Languages Poetry Live

Academic

Our Second Year linguists excelled at this year’s Poetry Live competition as they performed in front of over 200 spectators at St Mary’s University, Twickenham.

After progressing through inter-form and year group rounds, the four Hamptonians advanced to the final where they competed against 64 pupils from 22 schools across London and the South East. The boys performed a poem in their chosen language in front of a packed hall of teachers, family and friends and were judged on fluency, pronunciation and the all-important star quality.

Congratulations to Vishal Saha and Tom Oliver who both won gold for their outstanding poetry performances in Spanish and German.
