Skegness Grammar students are to have their work published after winning a writing competition.

Work from 18 Skegness Grammar School students has been selected for inclusion in a special anthology following the Young Writers’ War of the Words competition.

“Thousands of entries were received from across the UK, with work selected on perception, imagination, expression and creative use of language”, said War of Words editor, Donna Samworth.

“This is a great achievement that you and your pupils can be proud of,” she told headmaster Simon Sprague.

A copy of the book will be sent to the British Library and other libraries across the UK, providing a lasting record of their achievement.

The school will also receive a complimentary copy of the book, scheduled to be published in September.

Mr Sprague said: “It will be quite something for so many of our students to be published in the book.”

“We’re proud of the high standards of work achieved in English and this provides further evidence. Congratulations to those who are to be published and thanks to our English team for their encouragement,” he added.

The students who will be published are William Jacobs, Matthew O’Dare, Emma Shaw, Florence Lloyd, George Konstantinou, Tulasi Richardson, Hope Redford, Rose Rye, Nicole Yates, William Ranyard, Ula Boney-Hundal, Morgan Baker, Jarod Spence, Abigail Mills, Chyna Coombes, Bethany Coldwell, Caitlin Askew and Joshua Fletcher.
