RES Poetry student


We are proud to announce that Remi Obasa has won second place in the Betjeman Poetry Prize Competition. As a result, Remi has won the following prizes: £50 as runner up, 4 Eurostar tickets to Paris, Lille or Brussels, a tote bag from Hatchard's bookshop crammed with books and a book token and the publication of his poem- World War Two Bomb Shelter – in an anthology.


RES Poetry student


On Thursday 8th October 2015, Remi was one of six finalists whose poem was shortlisted from thousands of students across the UK. It was an honour to watch Remi represent the school so beautifully. He read his poem with admirable poise and captivated the audience throughout his reading. We congratulate Remi and his family on such a profound achievement and hope to see more amazing feats from him in the near future.


World War II Bomb Shelter

By Remi Obasa


The lighting was dim,
The atmosphere was dead,
Soil fell through cracks in the ceiling,
And on to my trembling head.


Thud, Thud, Thud,
Explosions all around,
The city I know and love,
Turned to a hole in the ground.


The dry aroma,
Blocking my nose,
It’s hot and sweaty,
And everyone knows.


The shock and panic,
Is a lot to handle,
The cramped little place,
Is lit by candle.


I can taste the mud,
Filling the air,
People are scared,
Everywhere.

Young Photographer Award

Young Photographer Award


Year 9 student, Emily Clark recently took part in the Brooklands Museum "Young Photographer Competition" where she was tasked with responding to the theme of "Every Picture Tells a Story." Emily took a lovely selection of photos, many of which looked at the reflective and symmetrical qualities of motorcars whilst experimenting with some very interesting viewpoints and angles. From what was a strong selection of photos, Emily had to choose one image to submit for the competition and eventually decided to put forward this image which beautifully captures the hood ornament from a classic Jaguar.


Young Photographer Award


The composition of the photo clearly employs the well-known "rule of thirds" technique and has a shallow depth of field which gives the impression that the Jaguar is almost jumping out of the frame. The judges were obviously impressed with Emily's idea and the way she attempted to bring the Jaguar to life in her photo. Emily was chosen as the runner up in the 13-16 age category which is a tremendous achievement and one which should be commended.
