Author Chris Bradford visits Addeys

Chris, already a successful author of the popular Young Samurai series of books and a trained martial arts expert, visited the school on May 2nd  as one of the dates in a 6 week tour visiting schools across the country to launch the first book in his new series - "Bodyguard, Hostage". During the session he invited students to come up and experience some of the training as a professional bodyguard he had undergone in preparation for writing this 6 book series. One of the most interesting facts he shared was that women are in demand as bodyguards as no-one would suspect them of performing this role!

His new series features 14 year old hero, Connor Reeves, recruited to train as a bodyguard to protect the President's daughter. Copies of the book are available for students to borrow from the library now and students are encouraged to enter our writing competition (details in the library)  to win their own free signed copy of the book along with other prizes.
