Well done, Hannah!


Congratulations to Hannah Hodgson in Year 12, for winning a joint Oxfam/Poetry Society prize for her poem entitled ‘Equals’.

Hannah won her prize as part of a competition called  ‘Even It Up’, where the challenge was to write a poem or spoken word piece exploring global inequality or gender inequality.

The challenge was open to young people aged 11-25 from the UK.

This adds to Hannah’s growing poetry reputation; she is also the Young Poet Laureate for the upcoming Kendal Festival. Well done Hannah, and keep going!
