TEENAGERS from across Camden wowed audiences with their sonnets, odes and haikus at the borough's first ever poetry slam.

Teams of Year 8 pupils from Acland Burghley, Hampstead, Haverstock, Maria Fidelis, Parliament Hill and William Ellis showcased their poetic talent at the special event held in Channing School in Highgate.

Each team spent two months composing, editing and perfecting their performances in anticipation of the big day.

Standards were very high throughout the competition which was based around the theme of Making History, Forgotten Histories.

It is hoped during the year that the team will have the opportunity to take their poems on the road and share them with other young people in Camden.
