BBC Short Story Success: James Tipler 7M

BBC Short Story Success: James Tipler 7M

GMS are celebrating a student’s win in the BBC Radio 2500 word story writing competition. James Tipler of 7M entered his composition into the Year 10 to 13 category and won in the first round.

Success was based on showing originality through having a engaging plot line, believable characters, and language choices that brought enjoyment to the reader.

The entries were composed during form time and at home. In total, there were 131,798 entries and James’s composition has been selected to go into the second round.

His story entitled “World of Cats (and Dogs)” is about a on-going feud between a feline and canine gang.

If James’s story wins it will be read live on the radio by a superstar celebrity…like Julie Walters, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Kenneth Branagh, Jeremy Irons, or Sherlock himself – Benedict Cumberbatch.

The Gold winners from each age group will win a pile of books as tall as Chris – that’s 1.88 metres! – and 500 books for their school library.

We are extremely proud that one of our students has progressed as far as he has. Well done to him.
