Independent Co-Educational Day School
Huge congratulations to Millie for making the second round of BBC Radio 2's 500 word competition!
Millie's story - The Journey - was one of only 5,000 stories that made it through to the second round of BBC Radio 2's 500 Word competition out of over 130,000 entrants! Coming within the top 3% is impressive but given Millie's category spanned Years 5 to 8 (and she is Year 6) it is even more so.
The Journey, which can be downloaded below, is a wonderful love story. It's amazing how a story can be squeezed into 500 words!
Although Millie did not make it to the final 50, the final would only have been a wonderful bonus to an already extraordinary achievement. Staff and pupils at Leehurst Swan are most impressed and very proud of her success.Go back
