Upper Sixth English Society

The second Upper Sixth English society lunch explored issues of class and opportunity in the 1950s and 60s.

After a civilised lunch and a short talk by Mr Goldsmith which touched on some of the reasons for the emergence of a greater diversity of voices in British literature in the 1950s and 60s, Y13 English Literature pupils worked in pairs to come up with a synopsis for their own ‘1960s style’ lost literary masterpiece. They were given some creative writing stimulus sheets which used dice to generate possible plotlines and character archetypes – and the best pair’s outline will be judged in lessons on Friday.

EMC Conference

On Tue 5th November, Upper Sixth students travelled to London for the annual English and Media Centre A Level Conference.

The day was excellent – from a wonderfully erudite session by modern gothic novelist Andrew Michael Hurley on the importance of setting in literature to a rousing 30 minute (at times comic) precis of ‘The Iliad’, each session really challenged and extended. The Conference’s varied nature – including a panel discussion with two active poets – is key to its success and our students were particularly wowed by Raymond Antrobus’s wit and political message.
