Y9 & Y10 will be reading three books this year in form time. This is part of our ambition to celebrate reading and maintain a passion for books that students often lose in high school. The reading will be guided by form tutors and students will have a copy of the book that will be kept in form classes. The three books chosen link to personal development and character education.

‘The Happiest Man on Earth’ is about the Holocaust and a survivor’s ability to deal with his experience and celebrate life.

‘Show Us Who You Are’ is written by neurodiverse author, Elle McNicoll, and explores the world through the lens of a neurodiverse young person.

Malorie Blackman’s, ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ tackles gender norms and race.
