As part of National Storytelling Week teachers visited the library at lunchtime to share extracts from their favourite story or a short story. The event took place in the silent study room in the library so a perfect setting for listening to the wonderful stories that were shared. Over the week 53 students attended one or more session. It was great to see teachers from the different departments in school taking part.

“It was brilliant thing to hear so many stories from different voices. It inspires you to read more books!”
