500 words

18 April 2017

Congratulations to Year 7s Emma, Isabella and Mathilda whose entries to the Radio 2 500 Words Competition are 2 of the 5,000 to have been selected from 131,798 stories to go into the second round of judging.

The writing initiative, created and spearheaded by Radio 2's Chris Evans, is now in its seventh year and encourages children across the UK to get creative and send in stories of no more than 500 words.

The competition has been extremely tough and we are very proud of our young writers for getting through to this stage.
