Clare Balding_with bookWe are thrilled to announce that award winning television presenter, radio broadcaster and author Clare Balding, OBE has again requested to visit our school to launch her latest children’s book.   


Clare is following up her bestselling debut novel The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop with a brand new Children’s title, The Racehorse Who Disappeared. In this book, Clare continues the adventures of young Charlie Bass and her funny family of humans and animals. Life is slowly getting back to normal for Charlie after her reluctant racehorse, Noble Warrior, won the Derby and saved her family from financial ruin. 

But drama soon returns to Folly Farm when thieves break into the farmyard in the dead of night and kidnap Noble Warrior. With the police baffled and no trace of the prizewinning thoroughbred to be found, Charlie launches her own investigation.

Clare will speak to the Junior School and Year 7 for an hour on Tuesday 3rd October. Her presentation is certain to inspire our students in many ways, but, above all, it will encourage reading for pleasure.

Venue: Big School, Wolverhampton Grammar School.

Contact: For further details please contact Zoe Rowley, Head Librarian at Wolverhampton Grammar School by email or telephone: 01902 421326 by Friday 29th September.
