Students from the Bury St Edmunds All-Through Trust were treated to an exciting literary experience last week with a visit from performance poet Ash Dickenson.

As part of the lead up to National Poetry Day, pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 took part in poetry workshops at County Upper School. They worked in groups to create poems on the theme of light with help from Ash, staff from the English department and sixth form students.
