Award winning pupils at Norham High School were overwhelmed when they found out that they had been chosen to meet author and TV star David Walliams. The year 7 pupils were chosen because of their outstanding attitude to learning and positive contribution in and around school. The pupils were then invited to join the year 7 book club to read Davids most recent book "Grandpa's Great Escape". The pupils who were already fans of the the Walliams book collection eagerly signed up and were rewarded with their own copy of the new text to be taken to Seven Stories in Newcastle to have it signed by the man himself. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the book and were in raptures when they met David at the book signing event as he posed for a whole host of photographs and selfies for each pupil when they met him. He even signed Tina Campbells plaster cast on her broken arm! A fantastic trip that turned Grandpa's Great Escape into Norham's Great Adventure!
