Award-winning Hip Hop artist, poet and author Karl Nova came to NWC to talk to Years 3, 4, 5 and 6!

They learned about his childhood and how he was introduced to Rap and why he chose to ignore his father’s careers advice, and decided to take up writing poetry and music instead. In 2020, Karl became the recipient of the prestigious and coveted Ruth Rendell Award for his outstanding contribution to raising literary levels in the UK. His energy, humour and passion for writing was infectious and both teachers and pupils came away enthused and inspired.

Some of our girls got to have their books signed by Karl, too!
