The school fielded the highest number of pupils per percentage of school population completing the challenge, which took for its theme ‘Mythical Maze.’


Sponsored by Scottish Widows for the seventh year in succession the challenge, an initiative of independent charity The Reading Agency and supported by the Henry Bloom Noble Library, aims to open up the world of books to children, encourage creativity and widen their reading range by challenging them to read six library books during the summer holidays.
