Book of the Month

Students and staff have been busy reading this term with three flourishing Book Clubs running: an enthusiastic Year 10 Student Book Club, a Staff Book Club and a Staff Young Adult Fiction Book Club which has over 25 members from all corners of the school: Maths to Drama, Business to MFL.

This October saw students and staff in the YA Book Club reading the same book: Dashka Slater’s The 57 Bus. Students have been spotted reading The 57 Bus in the playground and at bus stops. Staff have just finished reading it and now have the joy of lending their copies to students they teach. You can read comments and reviews on the The 57 Bus page; students’ reviews will soon to join. Our next read is The Night Diary By Veera Hiranandani followed by Things a Bright Girl Can Do by Sally Nicholls.

Year 10 Student Book Club and Staff YA Fiction KS4 Book Clubs’ read for Autumn.
Staff YA Book Club’s KS3 read for November and December.
Staff YA Book Club’s KS3 read for the Spring term (runner up in the staff poll).

Add to this, the general Staff Book club are on their fifth book since the summer term: Megan Giddings’ Lakewood. Previous titles included: Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, Bernardine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other, Stephen Fry’s Mythos and Bolu Babalola’s Love in Colour.
