This week the Prep School welcomed children’s author Tom Palmer into school. Tom has had over 40 books published and he is the author of a new book called Armistice Runner, which is about a keen young fell-runner who discovers her great-grandfather’s diaries from the First World War.

Children from Years 4 to 6 attended workshops throughout the morning of Tom’s visit. Pupils listened intently as Tom spoke about himself as an author and the importance of reading; he explained how as a child he became an avid reader after his mother pushed him to read comics. The children then played games, some won a gold medal! Finally pupils had a chance to have their new books signed by Tom.
