Some of our students have recently been entered into the Young Writer's Competition called 'Spine Chillers Mini Saga' in which they had to write a 100 word sinister story. Currently 50 have been successful and will be published within a special anthology. The company received thousands of stories from all over the UK and work was selected based on imagination, perception, expression and creative use of language. Mrs Fletcher, the students' English Teacher, said "this is a grerat achievement and I'm very proud of my students and their hard work as we did a lot of work in class on creating faulous and effective scary stories!"

A copy of the students' work will be sent to the British Library and further libraties across the UK and Republic of Ireland providing a lasting record of achievement. Melior will also receive a complimentary copy which is scheduled for publication on the 30th April 2016.

Specific winners will be chosen and notified once the book has been published. The top five writers will receive a Kindle Fire HD and prizes for the school include 1st prize £1000, second prize £500 and third prize £250.
