We were delighted to welcome over 200 local primary school students to the school for a lively and entertaining talk by comedian and children’s author, David Baddiel. Students from Lena Gardens, Brackenbury Primary, Avonmore and the West London Free School listened attentively as David read excerpts from his best-selling children's novels, The Person Agency, The Person Controller and AniMalcolm, as well as his latest book, Head Kid, in which "the strictest head teacher swaps bodies with the naughtiest kid in school". The young audience then had great fun dreaming up ideas and telling David what rules they would implement if they ever found themselves in a similar situation!
To round off a fantastic morning, the children received a personalised copy of Head Kid, signed by David himself, courtesy of Godolphin and Latymer’s primary partnerships programme.
The Primary Schools Partnership Programme aims to support local schools through numerous different projects, and we have been incredibly fortunate to have such inspiring authors as Mr Baddiel contribute to the programme.
