Author Visit

The Library has had a very exciting start to the new school year with our first author visit since Covid. Patrice Lawrence in conjunction with the Budleigh Literary Festival visited the college on Tuesday 13th September and talked to the new Year 7's about the life experiences that shaped her into the writer that she is today and what it is like to be an author. The students completed a homework based on her new book 'The Elemental Detectives' and produced some fantastic display work, which Patrice loved looking at, especially as this was her first school tour with her new book. At the end of Patrice's talk students had the opportunity to ask lots of questions and collect signed copies of her latest book.

The book is now available in the library for the students to take out and read.

‘Step into a London where magic sparks just beneath the surface: home to the fiery dragons, the airy fumis, the watery chads and the earth-bound magogs. What if the Elements could slow down this new world... or stop it all together?’
