Poetry abounds at Graveney School. One teacher has special responsibility for the development of poetry throughout the school and there are many imaginitive schemes. Poets including Andrew Motion, Valerie Bloom and Jackie Kay have visited to work with the pupils. Pupils take part in after school writing groups, go on residential courses, produce poetry magazines and their work does well in external competitions. Poetry is 'cool' at Graveney, amongst both boys and girls, which is a considerable achievement in one of London's largest schools.
