On the 15th March, pupils in year 9 worked in collaboration with The National Literacy Trust and Poet Amina Atiq to create writing for change. 'The Power of Voice' aims to empower young people to tell the stories that matter to them, harnessing the power of writing to share stories and experiences with a real audience and drive change.

The programme encourages participating young people to explore their civic identities and use their own voices (including home languages and dialects) to reach a specific audience by selecting a form for their written piece.

Across the 3 weeks, a group of selected professional ‘change-maker’ authors turn classrooms into dynamic environments for debating and exchanging ideas. The programme culminates in the publication of a celebratory zine.
