The Northern Rocks 2017 event is just around the corner.

Northern Rocks 2017

The first Northern Rocks Education Conference #NRocks was held on Saturday 7th June 2014 at Leeds Metropolitan University. 500 teachers gathered in the rain to reclaim their profession.

On Saturday 17th June 2017, a wide variety of education specialists will be heading to Leeds and we hope you can join us. In addition, we™re committed to our principle that education exists to make the world a better place and that the future lies in the hands of our young people. This year we™ll have some of those young people telling us what they think about education, what they hope for in the future and what they would like to change.

The Five Clues is one of eight books shortlisted for the Dudley Children’s Book Award!
Here's some feedback from the judges: I thoroughly enjoyed The Five Clues. Edie is courageous and talented, and shows great resilience and determination in solving clues left by her mum following her death. It is a wonderful, clever and compelling read. It’s also the first book in the Don’t Doubt the Rainbow series, so I can’t wait for the next instalment! A very worthy title on the Dudley Children’s Book Award Shortlist.
