Secondary Schools Outreach
In June 2018, after the success of our Festival Schools Day working with local Greenwich primary schools, we extended our educational programme to include a Secondary Schools Outreach Programme. The inaugural events, which ran at Thomas Tallis School and The John Roan School, included an author talk and Q&A session with rising YA star Muhammad Khan, the winner of a John C Lawrence award for his book ‘I am Thunder’ (Macmillan Children’s Books).
In June 2019, we were pleased to take our Greenwich Book Festival Outreach Programme to another two local secondary schools. Carnegie Medal nominated author Catherine Johnson ran creative writing and author talks based on her recent novels ‘Freedom’ (Scholastic) and Race To The Frozen North (Barrington Stoke).
Sadly due to the COVID19 pandemic we had to cancel the outreach events for 2020 but we hope to be back and offering this fantastic opportunity to local secondary schools again in June 2021.
