Pupils from Falcons Preparatory School for Boys in Richmond have triumphed in a highly competitive poetry competition.

Four pupils from the school, Callum (12), Sean (11), Tristan (9) and former pupil Alex (12) were commended for their work in The Chiswick Young People’s Poetry Competition.

The pupils had their poetry placed proudly on display in the ceremony marquee and they each won a certificate and goodie bag.

Head of English Ellie Challis, said: “The boys all wrote very original pieces and were hard working and inspired to write about topics important to them.”

The pupils were also honoured in a school assembly with a ‘Poetry Award’ badge to wear all year as poet laureates.
