Year 12 students took part in a charity Colour Run in aid of the Grace Dear Trust. Students ran or walked around the school field getting showered with washable paint. Lots of fun in the sunshine and raising £260 for the charity, whose ethos is ‘It’s OK to not be OK’. pic.twitter.com/RlcifqbI7M

Summer Reading List

With the summer holidays upon us, and whether you are sitting on a beach or on your sofa, you will want a good book to dip into.  If you like to read for pleasure or want to start doing so, the LRC (Learning Resource Centre/ library) staff recommends the following:-

  1. Emma Raducanu by Sally Morgan.  Find out the inside story of one of our greatest tennis stars.  We also have similar titles on Sir Andy Murray and Serena Williams.  Good for years 7+.
  2. Until the Road Ends by Phil Earle.  A moving WW 2 tale by one of the LRC’s favourite authors.  Peggy and her pet dog are separated when she is evacuated out of London.  But is this is a permanent separation?  Year 7+
  3. Legendborn by Tracy Deonn.  The first in a new YA fantasy series.  How will 16 year old Bree deal with her mum’s death and her own burgeoning magical powers?  We also have book 2, Bloodmarked.  Year 9+.
  4. Regretting by Colleen Hoover.  A gripping family drama that only Tik Tok author legend, Hoover, could write.  Several other titles by the same author available in the RC.  Year 9+ mostly.
  5. Swift and Hawk: Cyberspies by Logan Macx. An action packed adventure story about teen experts in AI and robotics, the eponymous Swift and Hawk.  We also have part 2 of the series.  Year 7 plus.
  6. The Thing: The Next Big Thing by Walter Mosley.  In the mood for a new graphic? Follow ‘the Thing’ through the streets of New York City.  Year 7+
  7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.  Girl gets sent to Paris by her dad, as one does.  Speaks no French, and meets a boy who does.  Year 9+.
  8. A Really Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. Fancy learning something about time, space and life on Earth without even trying?  If so, please try this beautifully illustrated book.  Due to size, more of an indoor read.  Year 7+.
  9. The Art Book, Big Ideas Simply Explained.  Dorling Kindersley.  This book is not only a feast for the eyes because of its reproductions of well known paintings, but it also full of interesting facts about artists and painting techniques.  If you are planning to visit a gallery over the holidays, or are just interested in art in general, try this.  Year 7+.
  10. The Secret History by Donna Tartt.  Having just celebrated its 30th birthday (and still in print), this is the ultimate holiday read.  Find out what happens to a group of students at an elite USA uni who come under the influence of an alternative thinking professor.  Year 11+.
