Year 8 and Year 9 took part in a Guinness World record attempt with over 100 schools around the country to be a part of the world’s largest ever reading lesson. The event took place on Friday 24th June, with over 4000 young people reading together. We successfully broke the World Record and will shortly receive certificates and a mention in the Official Guinness World Records. By way of a thank you, the organisation are also donating some new fiction books to our growing library.
“While it is great to be able to say we are record breakers, what pleases me is that we didn’t change anything about our day to take part in this. Our pupils are getting into the habit of reading in their form time each week. We know that if pupils select challenging texts and read them both in and out of school then they put themselves on the path to University.” Mr Butterfield
