Kate Pankhurst and Bournville BookFest come to EHS

02 March 2018

As we celebrate 100 years of women winning the vote, we are delighted to be welcoming author-illustrator Kate Pankhurst - who topped the UK non-fiction children’s book charts with her first book in 2017 “Fantastically Great Women who changed the World” - to EHS on the afternoon of Sunday 25 March as part of this year's Bournville BookFest.

Kate’s book features a number of the women whom our Houses are named after and it is stunningly illustrated and very inspiring book. Kate has now released “Fantastically Great Women who made History” featuring more great women who made an impact. The team behind Bournville BookFest have kindly come up with a book offer of these titles for EHS girls and their families. The books retail at £6.99 each but EHS families can pre-order both titles signed by Kate Pankhurst for £10 (saving £3.98). If you would like to place a book order, please email with your daughter’s name and year group and then please send £10 in an envelope marked 'Bournville BookFest book order' into school by Friday 9 March at 9.00am latest.
