England: Poems from a School by Kate Clanchy (Editor)

"Not just good for school children, but great by any standard’"
(Phillip Pullman)
Oxford Spires Academy is a small comprehensive school with 30 languages – and one special focus: poetry. In the last five years, its students have won every prize going. They have been celebrated in the Guardian (‘The Very Quiet Foreign Girls Poetry Group’), and the subject of a BBC Radio 3 documentary.
 
In this unique anthology, their mentor and teacher prize-winning poet Kate Clanchy brings their poems together, and allowing readers to see why their work has caused such a stir. By turns raw and direct, funny and powerful, lyrical and heartbreaking, they document the pain of migration and the exhilaration of building a new land, an England of many voices.
 
In England: Poems from a School, you will find poetry as easy to read as it is hard to forget, as fresh and bright as the young poets who produced it.
 
A donation of 50p from the sale of each copy of this book will be made to and shared equally between the charities First Story and Forward Arts Foundation to help further creative writing in schools.
