Year 9 Girls scoop competition prize!

Sheffield High School has recently been congratulated on its success in a competition for young writers.

The competition requires students to compose a complete story – in 50 words – thus demanding great discipline and skill.

Thirty-six girls aged 13-14 have had their work selected for publication and the school has been awarded third prize for the quality of its submission and a cheque for £250 for the school accompanied this exciting news.

It created quite a buzz when the local press came into take photographs and interview some of the girls. Isabella, Harriet and Sarah all chatted to the reporter telling her about their stories and how excited they were to have had their first work published!

Well done to the students and staff in the English Department!
