Launceston College has been champions of Cornwall for 2013 and 2014 and has attended the national finals in Trafalgar Square, London, on each occasion. We want this to continue. Class competitions will take place in English lessons during the new term, after which The Voice style coaches will work with you to prepare you for the College final in late October/early November. Get started now and learn a poem over the summer. Top tip for learning is to teach somebody else – so perhaps you can learn yours by teaching a parent, relative or friend.

I am off to learn Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor-Coleridge – test me in the Autumn.
