World Book Day

Staff and students have once again made a huge effort, dressing up in a wonderful array of costumes for World Book Day!

Science dressed up as the cast of Lord of the Rings, English dressed up as characters from Harry Potter, and PE went back to their childhood, dressing as Mr Men and Little Miss characters.

As well as donning costumes, staff are sharing their favourite books with students and having their photographs taken to be used in posters around the school to show that everyone reads and has different tastes in fiction.

At the start of each lesson during the day, students will have a different 500-word story played to them, all of which come from the winning entries of last years’ Radio 2 competition.

All students in Years 7 – 11 will have £1 World Book Day tokens issued to them, which they can use to swap for a £1 book on Thursday or Friday in the School Learning Resource Centre (LRC) or as £1 off a full price book from a book retailer.

LRC Manager, Julie Hoskins said “Reading is so important to all students and our aim is to encourage all students to explore the huge range of fiction available to them. We have around 4,000 fiction books here for them to borrow, and we want to encourage them to find books they enjoy.”
