Philip Ardagh is one one Britain’s top authors for children and sells thousands of books.  It was, therefore, a real treat to have him at the college presenting a very informative and funny talk to local primary  year 5 & 6 students.


Philip describes himself as “a giant of a man”!

As he visited the college on Roald Dahl Day  it is perhaps appropriate to point out that Philip won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize: his books are hilarious.


Mr Ardagh’s visit was sponsored by the Budleigh Literary Festival.  Both the children and staff would like to thank them for bringing a very amusing and erudite giant to the college.
