Not just good for school children, but great by any standard — Phillip Pullman

Although this book is called England Poems from a School, these are really poems from the world, speaking of a freshly imagined England, in an English that plays the music of other half-remembered languages. These young poets are writing their lives with heartbreaking immediacy, in a time when home is a leaving, and also a becoming. — Imtiaz Dharker

Exceptional. All unflinching truths and zero pretentiousness. — Nathan Filer

I doubt I will read anything as moving for a very long time. These poems remind us that immigration is not abstract; it is children, missing their mother and missing their homes. — Evie Wyld

Helping us to see the world with a startling freshness, these lovely poems fill me with hope — Sarah Howe

This moving and beautifully formed anthology of their work punches well above expectations for their age. Any age . . . From Poland, Korea, Russia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Colombia these writers are worldly and world-class, their writing so natural and their stories so affecting I do hope the Home Office at the very least orders a copy to keep in the loo. ― The Times

Tender, funny, succinct and often devastatingly sad verses about home, family, loneliness and identity . . . Kate Clanchy is the teacher we all wish we had. ― Stylist
