Kathryn Evans

What an absolute delight to have author Kathryn Evans return to the school on Tuesday 22nd June.   It was a very exciting day all round given that it was the first visit for both us and Kathryn since the lockdowns commenced.


Kathryn is a Carnegie medal nominated author with a passion for engaging young people to read and write their own creative pieces and she captivated all the students with four fantastic workshops.  We can’t wait for her third book to be published for a chance to invite her for a return visit.


Kathryn was bursting with energy, passion and enthusiasm. Her empathy based talks to years 7, 8 and 9 were relevant and engaging and subtly adapted to suit each year group.  Her final workshop had our year 10 students bursting with ideas and discussions.


During each event, Kathryn invited our students to ask questions. It was a great opportunity to learn more about her writing journey.  Some of which can be found in the latest school newsletter.


What a great way to end a difficult year.
