They are all enthusiastic readers and can't wait to meet and chat about books. We were the first Secondary School to win the Literacy Trusts Reading Champions school of the year. They are excited about participating for the first time in Carnegie Shadowing and are looking forward to reading the books and writing some reviews. Please have a look around our page and enjoy.
