Family Reading Boxes are available to all Year 7 pupils and have been put together by the school library to promote reading for pleasure and encourage students, parents and other family members to read together.
The boxes include 20 titles which range from preschool books, teenage dramas and classics to cookery and fiction for older readers.
A full list of titles can be found on the library section of the school website.
The whole collection of books will be on loan to each family for up to one month.
Letters will be sent out to parents at the beginning of the Autumn Term.
In order to loan a family box, students will need to bring their library card with them to the library along with the attached consent slip; if preferred parents are welcome to collect the boxes after school on Wednesdays (2.15pm).
Boxes can be returned in the same way. Should you have any enquiries please contact Mrs P. Ashford.
