    Writing Success

     Year 13 English Literature student Aidan has been shortlisted for two prestigious writing competitions. One of his poems has been shortlisted for the Terry Kelly Poetry Prize, and a prose piece on a painting by Giacomo Balla called ‘The Hand of the Violinist’ has been shortlisted for the Write On Art Prize, run by the Paul Mellon Centre for British Art. Aidan has been offered a place to study English Literature at Cambridge University next year.
