On Friday 17th June, 27 pupils attended a world premiere of a stage adaptation of Gangsta Granny by David Walliams,  the UK’s best selling author for children at the Grand Opera House.  The hilarious and heartfelt story is one of old age, adventure, stolen jewels and swimming in the Thames!

David Walliams is one of the most highly borrowed authors from the school library.  His books have been translated into over 40+ languages and have taken the children’s literary world by storm, dominating sales charts and twice winning the National Book Award Children’s Book of the Year.  Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the stage adaptation of one of his best selling books.  Mr Spence, Head of English alongside Miss McAtamney and Mrs Reid also thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
