Pupils in Years 7 and 8 were left 'spellbound' by a captivating talk from magician and mentalist, Katherine Mills recently.

Speaking to the children virtually through Teams, Katherine opened the talk with an interactive group card trick - which was no mean feat with almost 100 online guests!  Katherine spoke to the children about how her interest in magic developed from the age of 14, and how magicians and mentalists like David Blain and Dynamo inspired her to chase a career in this unusual field.  Katherine also gave examples of the charity work she has done, the television shows she has appeared on, and the famous people she has performed magic for, including Boris Johnson after he was first elected, to Richard Branson, who she performed the trick 'card through window' for whilst on one of his aeroplanes!

Afterwards, the Senior children enjoyed a virtual 'social' where they agreed that a career in magic could be quite an exciting option!
