Radio 2 500 Word Competition

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Here at Neatherd we believe we have some very talented writers. To encourage their creative flair we are taking part in the Radio 2 500 Words Competition- open to anyone aged 13 years or under on the 27th May 2016.

We want your child to submit something mad, magical, mind- blowing or mysterious with no more than 500 words! All entries will be submitted to the national competition where they will be in with a chance to win a pile of books as tall as Chris Evans plus 500 books to add to our redeveloped new library. In addition to this we will also be awarding prizes to the top three stories from our school.

Please encourage your child to take part in this amazing competition which allows them to be as creative and imaginative as they dare- the stories can be about anything and having been a judge for the past four years I can confirm they really are diverse!

To enter please submit the stories to via their nsix account- giving their name, age and form group.


Let’s get creative and show the nation that Dereham Neatherd High School students really do have creative talent!

Kind Regards

Mrs L. Gill
