Author Guy Bass Officially Opens the Refurbished Library - September 2018


We all had a wonderful day when Guy Bass, award-winning author of such great books as ‘Stitch Head’ came to open our school library!

It is with great thanks to our fantastic PTA, who contributed £13,000 towards the renovation, that the library was able to go ahead. The children love it and it has helped focus reading as a such an important part of our school.

Guy stayed all day and the children had a hilarious time listening to his stories, tales about his life and why reading is so important to him.  A truly inspirational day!
