Clare Balding Visit to KGS

Kirkham Grammar School were delighted to be chosen to host a very special event with BBC Sport, Channel 4 and BT Sport presenter turned author, Clare Balding this morning. The event welcomed 500 children from the Junior School and other local primary schools and saw Clare talk about her books ‘The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance’, ‘The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop’ and ‘The Racehorse Who Disappeared’, sharing tips for budding writers and answering questions from the audience. Many children had already read Clare’s books which made this a fantastic opportunity and experience to hear from her in person. All the pupils and staff had a wonderful morning and were very excited to be given the opportunity to purchase Clare’s books and have it personally signed by her! Thank you Clare for visiting Kirkham Grammar School. A selection of photographs from the event are now available to view on our Kirkham Grammar School Flickr page: KGS flickr
