I’m delighted to announce that it has been confirmed today that I am Patron of Reading for Oldham Hulme Grammar School. We have some exciting things planned for my first visit on 12th September.
This is the second school that I am working with as Patron of Reading. The other is Summerville Primary School, Salford, where I have had one visit so far in May.
“A Patron of Reading is a school’s special children’s author, poet, storyteller or illustrator. The school and their patron develop a relationship over a period of time. Everything the patron does is related to helping encourage and develop a reading for pleasure culture in the school.” Read more about the scheme on the Patron of Reading website.
