ETSP Projects
ETSP Poetry Festival 2018

In partnership with The Poetry Society we held a series of poetry workshops for pupils in one year group across each of our 21 schools. The workshops were delivered by five professional poets to Primary pupils from either Year 1, 3, 4 or 5 over the summer term and to Year 10 students at Chace Community. Our Primary pupils created their own poems based on the theme of 'Global Citizenship'. Paul Lyalls, Simon Mole, Cheryl Moskowitz, Francesca Beard and Rachel Piercey brought a wealth of fun and creativity to our schools.


Pupils were selected from our Primary schools to participate in four incredible performances at Enfield's first Literary Festival at The Dugdale Centre at the end of June. Every Primary pupil who participated in the festival has contributed to our poetry anthology 'Under the Same Sky' which is on sale in Waterstones, Enfield Town.
