Matt Dickinson

Today Year 8 students were kept enthralled by the author and film-maker Matt Dickinson.  In 1996, along with Alan Hinkes, he made a successful ascent of Mount Everest. Students were given an insight into all that is involved in making such a climb.

He became the first British film-maker to film on the summit and return alive, and his film called Summit Fever has now been seen by more than twenty million people worldwide. It is acclaimed as a compelling story of human triumph and disaster.  "The Death Zone" is his written account of the expedition and is available from the Library for you to read.


Matt Dickinson has also written a new adventure series Mortal Chaos.
