World Book Day 2018

Despite the freezing temperatures, students and staff still turned out in their costumes to celebrate World Book Day.
As part of the activities was ‘Drop Everything and Listen’, (DEAL) when a bell rung around the school and staff read to students, a fiction bingo inter-house competition is running for the whole of March and staff also promoted reading with signs on their doors letting students know what they are reading now.

Our Bake Off Competition unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the bad weather and school closure. If your child has a picture of their effort please ask them to bring it into school for some house points to be added to their account.

Even at high school regular reading is such an important part of students’ learning. Did you know that a student who reads for 20 minutes just every school night will be reading for around 63 hours per school year. This will be equivalent to just under 2million words!!!!This has a huge impact on learning and vocabulary.


Please ask your child, “What are you reading today?”










 Congratulations to all the winners.

Thank you to the English department.
