English Department Showcase Microsite | Newsletter

To showcase the creative brilliance of our students, the English Department have launched a new website, Handsworthy.  It is a dedicated space for our students to share their written work with the wider world. From interesting stories and poems to speeches and articles, if it stands out, then it’s Handsworthy!

We currently have the winning entries from our Summer Creative Writing competition on the home page, with some powerful work on the theme of Hope; many students were inspired by the BLM movement or by social injustices in this work. We also have a selection of our Year 7 newspaper reports written about an event (fictional or real) that occurred in lockdown, which formed part of our online learning in May.

We hope you enjoy viewing their work. Please go to This link   in future to keep abreast of the latest creative successes and intriguing imaginative pieces created by our students. We’re very proud of their talents.
