Visit of top author, Steve Cole

Senior School



On Wednesday 15th March all boys in Forms 1, 2 and 3 enjoyed a visit from children’s author Steve Cole. Steve is the author of a number of books including the Astrosaurs series, which is aimed at younger readers, and has recently become the new writer of Young James Bond, of which there are currently three in the series. Boys listened to his talk in which he spoke about his books and writing as well as discussing gadgets which were around in the 1920s and 1930s. Boys were intrigued by inventions such as the ‘baby apartment’ and do it yourself diving kits!

Two groups of students also attended a writing workshop led by Steve. In these interactive sessions boys developed their own characters and then wrote a piece of writing which included their characters within an action scene.

The boys thoroughly enjoyed Steve’s visit with many buying copies of his books to have signed.
