Seaford College is celebrating as its trend of increasing the number of students securing places at top Russell Group Universities continues. This is a record breaking year for Russell Group and 1st choice universities. Headmaster John Green, who took up the post four years ago and has implemented various successful strategies to improve the school’s academic core, said: “Seaford College has seen an impressive increase in our A*-B and A*-C A Level results from last year. Considering this is the first year of reverting back to the more traditional linear vs. modular testing, in most subjects, the results are even more impressive.”
Seaford College is celebrating a phenomenal 60% A* A Level pass rate for Creative Writing. John Doy, Seaford’s Director of Academic Performance said: “Before taking on my new role this academic year I was the Head of the English Department and we decided to compile this book to celebrate and share the fantastic work our students produce. There are lots of great things about being an English Teacher, but there is nothing quite like reading the work of a student that completely stops you in your tracks. We hope the writing we have included here gives you a little taste of how wonderful, surprising and sometimes terrifying that moment can be – when the power of “a word after a word after a word” becomes real.
There are pieces here from some of our A Level Creative Writing students and also from pupils further down the school.
We would like to thank the Art Department for helping us to provide the images we have selected to accompany the writing. The names of the students who created the images you see can be found on the page opposite.
“A word after a word
after a word is power.”
