Links in this section

Ludgrove boys proved once again what a creative and brave bunch they are when 29 of them appeared on stage in the Theatre for the Poetry Recitation Finals.

Standards were incredibly high and Mr McKinnel, former Ludgrove Master and current History Don at Winchester College, had the hard job of judging the performances.

After much deliberation, prizes went to Harry in the VIs, Angus in the IVs, Charlie in the IIIs, Freddie in the IIs and Will in the Is, who was also awarded the Cup. Special mention went to Henry in the Is for a very spirited performance.
