Ovid in the West Country Prize-Giving Ceremony

On Monday 5th December, Miss Williams and Mrs Foster had the pleasure of taking three Year 7 students to a prize giving at Bristol University for their project work created for the Ovid in the West Country Competition. 

All Year 7 students had worked on their projects for the first term as part of their literacy homework producing some excellent pieces of work inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphosis myths. The English Department were so blown away by the calibre of entries that a team of judges were assembled to choose the winning entries as only three could be selected for the external competition. 

After a long deliberation process, the following students were chosen: 

Vincent for his Theseus and the Minotaur stop-motion video with audio and end credits. 


Jaden for his interpretation of the Midas touch.

Elizabeth for her severed head of the Minotaur.

At the prize-giving, the competition between schools in the South West was very tight. Students were given certificates and prizes, and Vincent’s project was chosen as the winner for our school. A huge congratulations to all of Year 7 for their effort in Literacy lessons during the Autumn term.
