We were so excited to welcome author Ken Preston to the academy on Wednesday 11th September as part of our celebrations of International Literacy Day. Ken is an author who has written many books, mostly young adult fiction featuring tales of vampires, pirates, dinosaurs, ghosts and more. Ken worked with groups of our students in the academy and set them creative writing challenges. Our students were inspired by Ken and his advice. Ken said after his visit, “It was my absolute pleasure to visit you today. You’re doing amazing work and you have some quite frankly very talented creative writing students among you.” We couldn’t agree more!
