Sherry Wilson, Head of English at Bede’s Prep, says, “This year is one of the most highly contested awards since it began in 2010, with nearly 5,000 entries submitted in the national competition. The Wicked Young Writer Awards have reported that the quality of the entries this year is excellent, so for our pupils to be selected as one of the 20 finalists in their category is a huge achievement.”

The judges, including bestselling authors Cressida Cowell and Michael Morpurgo, will join the Bede’s Prep finalists at the Awards ceremony in London on Thursday 20 June, when they will announce the winner of each age category.
