We were delighted to be able to celebrate World Book Day in person after our virtual events last year. It felt so good to be able to return to our classrooms and LRC to celebrate together, and we had a wonderful day!

We started the day with a bookish breakfast in the LRC, and staff arrived to surprise students dressed as some of their favourite characters! A great start to the day!

Our wonderful families came to spend their family learning session in the LRC, completing book related puzzles, creating their own bookmarks and having a guided tour of the LRC by their children, introducing them to some of their favourite reads.

As we celebrated stories throughout the day, we shared a story throughout the whole school  – it was a tale of poison and humiliation set in Marrakesh and  it did not disappoint, a classic short story from one of our favourite writers, Anthony Horowitz. We also had a series of book related activities running throughout lessons across the school.

Tutor groups had been busily decorating their doors for our Dress a Door Competition, such effort and creativity made it very difficult to choose winners. It was a very close competition but congratulations to:

7A- Miss Ormsby
8E- Miss Hayle
9A- Miss French
10S- Mrs Gupta

It was wonderful to see the whole school coming together to share our collective love of reading and we had over 250 tokens exchanged for books in our pop up bookshop in the LRC at break and lunch, thank you to the student Librarians who worked non stop to exchange tokens for books. You still have until the end of March to spend tokens either by visiting the LRC, or in sipporting bookshops.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s World Book Day such a success! Here’s to next year!
