Giles Academy Poetry Competition 2022

It has been 18 months since Giles Academy became part of the South Lincolnshire Academies Trust where our school has made many improvements. This is why we are excited to announce the theme for our poetry competition this year is ‘My Primary School’.

Using ‘My Primary School’ as inspiration, the poem can be about anything to do with school, such as your favourite subject or teacher, school dinners, travelling to school, homework, being creative or playing sport.

This is your opportunity to celebrate all of the great things you enjoy about your school.
