What were you like at school?

Weedy, and not in any way remarkable. My PE report said, Graceful but ineffective, and that was about as good as it got. Handwriting? Terrible. Spelling? Dreadful. Games? Total disaster.

What inspires you about the Super Power Agency?

The way they support and encourage children who need more help in the education system… and the way they make creative work FUN and INTERESTING, and hugely rewarding.

What is your favourite book?

Mmmm… difficult! I Capture the Castle, by Dodie Smith.

Which fashion trend do you just not get?

I just don’t get the trend for jeans with holes in the knees! Don’t your knees get cold? And if you fall over, it’s always your knees that get skinned… so where’s the protection?

A penguin walks through a door right now, wearing a sombrero, why is he here and what does he say?

He says, Hi! Could you take my sombrero up to the North Pole, please? Global warming’s getting really bad, and the polar bears might need this.


    The Super Power Agency is dedicated to supporting young people, aged 8-18, using a range of writing workshops, interdisciplinary creative programmes and a corps of volunteers. Our aim is to give students the support they need to close the attainment gap in education.
