The College had immense pleasure to welcome Curtis Jobling as our guest on 22 January. Curtis is the designer of the worldwide hit children's television show 'Bob the Builder', and the author/illustrator of numerous children’s books. He brought a lot of enthusiasm for his craft which he shared with pupils from Year 5 to Year 10.

Early work on ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Mars Attacks!’ led to Curtis picking up his crayons in 1997 to design the BAFTA winning ‘Bob’. His own animated series, ‘Frankenstein’s Cat’ and ‘Raa Raa the Noisy Lion’, can both be seen on the BBC. Although renowned for his work in film & TV, Curtis’s true love has always been horror and fantasy. His acclaimed series of epic fantasy novels, ‘Wereworld' and his darkly comic young adult thrillers, 'Haunt: Dead Scared' and ‘Haunt: Dead Wrong’ alongside 'Max Helsing & The Thirteenth Curse' are all available in the College library.
