The pair met at the 2015 Chipping Norton Literary Festival where Sheila was speaking about her recent novel ‘Miss Carter’s War’, her life with Morse actor John Thaw and her Quaker faith.
The school sponsored the talk which took place on Saturday 25 April in front of a sell-out audience at Chipping Norton Theatre.
Michael Goodwin said: “We were delighted to discover that Sheila Hancock was one of the authors appearing at Chip Lit Fest. Sheila is a member of the Society of Friends and so, as a Quaker school, her talk was the perfect event for us sponsor. It was a great afternoon and Sheila was delightful.”
