Reading Week

October 16, 2017 – October 20, 2017 all-day

We are delighted that as part of our reading week, the following authors who will be visiting school:

17th October – Helen Moss

18th October – Sarah Crossan

19th October – Matt Dickinson

These authors have all agreed to sign copies of their books.  These may be purchased in advance from local bookshops but a selection of books by the visiting authors will also be available in school to buy during the week.  These each cost approximately £7.00.

During the fortnight covered by Reading Week and the half-term break, we hope that all members of years 7, 8 and 9 will all take part in ‘Readathon’.  This is a sponsored event to raise money for charities, which support seriously ill children. Each girl is asked to read from 1 to 6 books in that fortnight and to collect sponsors for her efforts. In previous years the pupils have generally raised over £2,000 for this cause, and we are hoping for another successful year.
