Y7 Sherlock Holmes Writing Competition 2018
In the week where former student Mitch Johnson wins the Branford Boase competition for a first novel, Year 7 have also been taking part in a writing competition. Students were asked to take writer’s methods such as presentation of character and the creation of crescendo from their reading of “The Dancing Men” and use it to inform their own writing of a Sherlock Holmes story.
As a member of the judging panel it really was difficult to come to a final decision but in the end Jack Newton was judged to be a worthy, if somewhat elusive, winner.
Judges : Mrs Webb and Ms Ellis
Congratulations Jack! Perhaps this week sees the beginnings of Northampton School for Boys next famous writer?
