RSPCA Story Competition

Below is all about the amazing competition the RSPCA are running, led by the Derby author Andrew Cope who writes the Spy Dog books we have in school. The competition is detailed on the document below. The deadline for entries is Friday 18th November.


The winning primary school receives a 1/2 day creative writing workshop with Andy Cope and a separate visit from Derby RSPCA.  Andy is super excited to get the chance to come into the winning primary school and the workshop can be for a year group, a class or all of key stage 2.  It's guaranteed to be a really fun session!


Good luck you amazing story writers.

Mr. Slaney



Creative writing competition for primary and secondary schools As part of our 150th anniversary celebrations, we have teamed up with children and young people's author Andy Cope for a creative writing competition for primary and secondary schools in Derby and the surrounding areas. Many years ago Andy adopted a dog called Lara from RSPCA Derby.
