Key Stage 4 Poetry Competition – ‘Poem for a New President’.

‘Poem for a New President’

The English Department recently ran a poetry competition for Key Stage 4 students, called ‘Poem for a New President’.
They took inspiration from Amanda Gorman’s poem, written and recited by the poet at Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony.

Students analysed Gorman’s poem and then used similar poetic features to write their own poem on the theme of a new hope for America.
