Campion Creative Writing Competition

Campion Creative Writing Competition

Campion School are launching a brand new writing competition! Every Tuesday and Thursday we will launch a different creative writing challenge which you will need to submit the following day (Wednesday and Friday). These are short activities that are entirely optional and not part of the weekly English work set by your teachers.

Each winner will receive a golden ticket and postcard home to celebrate your achievement!

We will add the new challenge on this page every Tuesday and Thursday.


Send your entries to Miss Anderson, JessicaA1@campion.warwickshire.sch.uk
