Sir William Borlase's Grammar School

Frances Hardinge Visit

Costa Prize-winning author visits Borlase

On Monday 11 November Borlase was delighted to host a visit from acclaimed Young Adult Fiction author, Frances Hardinge. Frances thrilled Year 8 & 9 students with the childhood nightmares that form the basis for many of her stories, and read extracts from her new novel, Deeplight, which combines some of her nightmares with her love of scuba diving.

At Borlase we believe in providing as many opportunities as we can for students to engage their imagination, stretch their understanding and broaden their awareness - it was lovely to be able to partner with France Hardinge for this experience.
