Emma Bridgewater "Hot Air Literacy Festival"

St Peter’s Academy had the fantastic opportunity of taking ten Y9 pupils to the ‘Hot Air Literary Festival’, on 9th and 10th June, where they were able to attend an audience with the renowned children’s author Nick Hornby and inspirational television presenter Kirstie Allsopp.

Pupils were lucky enough to meet Kirstie on the second day of the festival and had the opportunity to ask her about her favourite author, who she said was Nancy Thayer. All pupils that attended had a brilliant day and were encouraged to think about their love of reading, their favourite authors and their favourite books.
