Jonathan Meres Visits North Liverpool Academy

BEST-SELLING author, Jonathan Meres, visited North Liverpool Academy last week.

Meres, who has won a string of awards for ‘The World of Norm’ books, met with over 200 Year 5 pupils from our feeder schools to talk about his comic characters – including, Norm, a 12 year-old boy trying to cope with family, friends and life at school.

The visit is part of North Liverpool Academy’s ambition to encourage an ongoing love of reading amongst young people in Liverpool.


All visiting pupils were presented with a book from The World of Norm series. Students studied with our Year 7 and 8 students to raise aspiration and achievement in literacy.

An Academy teacher said – “The children loved Jonathan’s presentation. He kept them engaged for the duration.” Our children has researched Jonathan and had plenty of questions to ask.

A brilliant day was had by all, thanks to everyone involved!
