To start the morning, Andy  talked to all Year 7 pupils in Thornden Hall and were joined by a group of pupils from Hamble School.

Andy started by saying how important writing is.  Writers don’t just write books but write films, adverts, song lyrics, TV programmes (even all the stunts on Top Gear are scripted).  Andy talked about the different books he’s written – from graphic novels, the hero.com/villain.net books and his Tarzan series.  He then talked about his new book Inventory and how he came up with the idea for it.

The session ended with pupils having the opportunity to buy one of Andy’s books and getting it signed.

Andy then ran a workshop with 20 lucky Year 7 pupils.

After lunch Andy gave a repeat performance of his talk, this time to all Year 6 pupils as part of their Intake Day.
