Recently, Thorpe Lea Primary School had the absolute pleasure of welcoming Polly Ho Yen, children's author and mastermind behind the fabulous 'Boy in the Tower' - one of the entertaining and enthralling books our pupils have ever studied in Year 6. 


Despite coming an awful long way across the country, Polly was here bright and early to meet all of the children. She spent the entire day delivering inspiring and creative writing workshops with our pupils in Year 4, 5 and 6 but made the time to take a school tour and meet all of our children and staff. 


A special thank you to our head pupils who conducted an engaging and expansive school tour which drew huge compliments from our special visitor.
