As a way to promote reading, and to show pupils how many transferable skills reading can give you, the library and the English department joined forces to create the “Reading Challenge”. With the librarian devising the challenges, collecting and keeping track of pupils’ work and the English department ensuring that pupils comlpete the work on time, this new initiative has been very successful.
Pupils are asked to complete six challenges during the academic year, from a choice of ten, one per half term, based on something they have read. Prizes are awarded throughout the year to pupils we believe have put in the most effort and a £50 Liverpool One voucher will be given to the pupil who has tried the hardest over all six challenges.
