Dillena Basra, Head of English, Quintin Kynaston Community Academy

‘This has been an absolutely wonderful chance for our students. They are on free school meals, live in tough areas and have really challenging lives. It has been a chance for them to develop a love of language, of writing, to enjoy reading and the process of expressing themselves in a way that is so safe and so freeing. It has enabled them to discover themselves and develop this incredible talent. I am so proud of them and really grateful to be involved in First Story.’
