Back to school! Where it all began
On Friday 29th June we revisited Wavell School, where it all began. We were delighted to return with the writer who launched Reading Force for us there, back in 2011, international bestselling author Meg Rosoff, and were warmly welcomed by Headteacher Amanda Rowley.
