UK Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage offers advice

"Congratulations young laureates! Wear your crowns lightly. And there is only one form of advice you can give to writers: read.”

That was the congratulations and advice passed from UK Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, to our own Guiseley School Poet Laureates, Ron and Eliza. Both students are our first ever Poet Laureates, and we will look forward to sharing their work with you in the future. For now, please read this poem Eliza recently wrote to celebrate the move in our new school buildings.
