On Tuesday 5th July, Book Club attended the annual YTF Book Awards at RAF Cosford. It was an inspiring experience, where we got to hear talks from three of the finalists: Nicola Penfold, Joseph Elliot and local author Alex Foulkes. The pupils partook in a Q&A session and had the opportunity to meet (and talk to!) the authors themselves.
After voting on the title they believed should win the ‘Staffordshire Young Teen Fiction’ Award, pupils had the chance to explore the museum and watch the YTF Quizmasters.
At the end of the day, the winning title was announced: ‘All Our Hidden Gifts’ by Caroline O’Donoghue.
All of the pupils had an excellent day and represented the school wonderfully!
