Archive Updates - Poetry At Work Day

Last week our archivist Janette Ratcliffe was busy sharing poems from the archives in celebration of Poetry At Work Day.
Foundation Archivist, Janette Ratcliffe, loves to share the history of the Foundation Schools and their predecessors and is building quite a following on Twitter, with her regular tweets including fantastic, fascinating and even funny facts from the school archives.
Last week Janette shared a series of old pupil poems in celebration of #PoetryAtWorkDay.  They made for super reading and it was great to give them all another airing. An excerpt from James Hubbard's poem about the iconic Princethorpe Tower is pictured here.
