We are pleased to announce Sophie Ovington of year 9 as the winner of the Short Story Writing Competition launched as part of our World Book Day celebrations.

Sophie’s story centred on the theme of a family photograph, and raised lots of intriguing questionsabout a daughter who reminisces over the image, her memories leading her to question her family’s true identity.

An enticing and mysterious plot combined with some excellent description gave Sophie’s entry the edge.

Congratulations to all who took the time and effort to participate in the competition. It was a
pleasure to read such imaginative short stories.
