Author Peter J Murray inspires our Yr 7

On Monday 21 March, just before the Easter break, Yr 7 were treated to a talk from the author Peter J Murray.

Mr Murray spoke about where he gets his inspiration from to write his scary stories as well as about techniques for creating suspense and mystery. He also scared the living daylights out of most of the students (hopefully there weren't too many nightmares that night).

Mr Murray was extremely complimentary about our students saying,

“They sat beautifully and listened really well.  They also asked some excellent questions too and were really engaged.”

Mr Murray returned the next day for a book signing session which went down a storm with students purchasing 200 books all eager to read. The sessions have captured the year groups’ imagination and encouraged many students to read for pleasure.
