  • Year 7 boys' premier league reading challenge

    Published 22/11/16

    This week saw the launch of the Year 7 boys' premier league reading challenge. Introduced by Librarian Wendy McCabe, the students split themselves into teams of five, with each team representing a football team in the premier league.
