A big thank you to Sarah Govett, last year’s visiting author for inspiring our Y9s to read for pleasure and eagerly devour your dystopian trilogy.

It is interesting to see that Y12  were our most enthusiastic borrowers in 2018, followed by Y9, then Y13. The House which borrowed the most books is the Wellesley followed by the Hardinge. This is not taking into consideration size of houses or number of students in the year groups.
