Our Student Librarians travelled to Peters Booksellers in Birmingham to spend the generous parental donations through our ‘Support Your School’ fundraising scheme.

The Student Librarians work in the library each day, help run things and work with their fellow students on homework, etc. Those on the trip included: Meg Mathias (7D2), Emily Beddow (8G2), Isaac Brodie (8D1), Gabi Davies-Friend (8S2), Eleanor Easton (8S2), Lily Kennedy (8D2), Lucy Manning (8G2), Amelie Menaut (8J2), Abbie Pendlebury (8J2), Freya Short (8J2), Lily Sperryn (8G2) and Rhian Price (9G2)

The students were able to purchase 43 fiction titles for the library and this included:
Broken Heart Club – Cathy Cassidy
Maze Runner – James Dashner
Two Can Keep a Secret – Karen M. McManus
The Throne of Fire – Rick Riordan
Can You See Me? – Libby Scott & Rebecca Westcott
More Than We Can Tell – Brigid Kemmerer
I Am Not A Number – Lisa Heathfield
Collision – Victor Dixen
My Secret Lies With You – Faye Bird
The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
Warcross – Marie Lu
The Hit – Melvin Burgess
To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee

The students thoroughly enjoyed the shopping expedition with feedback including: “The visit was educational and enjoyable with much value” and “I enjoyed looking through the large selection of books and can’t wait to read them”.

Helena Cresswell, School Librarian, said: “It was a fantastic trip and it was lovely to see the students so enthusiastic about choosing new books. It is certainly something we will look to do again in the future.”
