Author Steven Herrick visited Lyndhurst on Friday 10th March and spoke with the Year 10 cohort who are studying his novel in verse "The Simple Gift" for English. 

His visit was greatly appreciated by the students who lined up at the end to get their books signed. Olivia Argaet and Michelle Prak quickly put together a poem to thank him for his visit, Steven was very pleased with their response and said it was the best 'thank you' he has ever had!  Read their poem's below.


Michelle – 

We want to thank you for ‘The Simple Gift’ and the books you have written that made us think deeply and view different perspectives and thoughts ‘The Simple Gift’

Your book Mr Steven Herrick has made an impact on us so thank you, 

we end with this verse for you


Olivia – 

As we say thank you, we draw inspiration from your work: Today, We gather in E1.

Lyndhurst Secondary College bright orange walls, and beams criss crossing the roof.

It’s the morning and the students sit inside.

Excitement in the air the students 

fidgeting in their chairs.

And the teachers listen eagerly.

As you started to talk,  one of the students whispered, “He dreamed of playing football.”

Then you said, “I wanted you looking into his (Billy’s) soul… It matters how you convey something… The simplest idea is what I’ve heard……poetry should always show us the other side of the story.”

Your poems sail through the goals.

Spreading inspiration.


It was an honour to have you.

Thank you         

Year 7 Excursion to see Harry Potter and the cursed child

The students were thrilled to be able to experience this magical and captivating story brought to life on stage.


The day started early, with the students meeting teachers at the train station to catch the train into the city. Many students were excited to have some free time to visit gardens in city.

The students also discussed their favourite characters and scenes from the Harry Potter books and movies before they entered . The production itself was truly impressive, with incredible special effects, stunning costumes, and outstanding performances from the talented cast.               

The students were engaged and engrossed in the show from beginning to end, and we heard many positive comments from them as we left the theatre. 


The excursion was an excellent opportunity for our Year 7 students to experience live theatre and to explore the world of Harry Potter in a new and exciting way. We hope that this experience will inspire them to continue exploring the arts and to seek out more opportunities to engage with live theatre in the future.
