Welcome to Taylor class! One of three Upper School classes at Porchester Junior School.

The author behind the name...

We are named after....

Thomas Taylor was born in Norfolk, grew up in Wales, lived in France for many years, and now resides on the south coast of England. His first ever professional commission - as a newly-graduated art student - was the cover art for 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' by JK Rowling. After this he illustrated and wrote dozens of picture books, and was artist on the graphic novel 'Scarlett Hart - Monster Hunter'


Taylor is most famous for his award-winning and best-selling Eerie-on-Sea Mysteries, which include:
