On 5 October 2005, The Skelmersdale Champion reported:
Maharishi School in Skelmersdale continues to lead the other local schools with the amazing creative accomplishments of the students. Pupils at the Maharishi School once again won prizes in the national Foyle Young Poets Awards, organised by the Poetry Society. Five students, Rebecca Broome, Paul Evans and Eleana Orr, Tom Escott and Emily Mercer received high honours for their poems.
They were invited, over nearly 5,000 other applicants, to a celebration party at Foyles' Bookshop in London on National Poetry Day, which took place on 6 October 2005. The Foyle Young Poet awards were established in 1999 and Maharishi School students are regularly among the winners and runners up.
Also, Rebecca Broome, Paul Evans, Emily Mercer, Eleana Orr, and Agnes Lambert who are year 10 in their studies, are among the winners of the Creative Writing competition organised by Manchester Metropolitan University. Their poems will be published in 'MUSE', the creative writing journal, which is available from bookshops.
