On Tuesday 13 March 2018, a group of Year 7 pupils travelled to Corbridge Middle School to watch a presentation by the acclaimed author (and film-maker) Frank Cottrell Boyce. They enjoyed listening to tales of his childhood and how he became inspired to be a writer. In addition, he shared many amusing extracts from a variety of his novels.

Novels signed by the author are now available at a discounted price of £5 from Forum Books in Corbridge to any pupil who explains that they're from HMS! We hope to see lots of pupils enjoying Frank's books around school; they're also available in Beaumont Library.
