Library News


Michaelmas was a busy term for the library with visits from the authors Michelle Paver and Andy Mulligan.

We were given the chance to enter two teams in this year’s Kids Lit Quiz East Midlands heat and both teams acquitted themselves well. Everyone came away with books and tokens.

We tried some new initiatives in the English Library lessons for key stage 3, with our Rhythm and Reading sessions with Mr Henderson. A number of our wonderful staff also came into lessons to talk about their love of reading and read some extracts from their favourite childhood books. So a big thank you to them.

During Anti –Bullying Week we ran a Trent Kindness Award. All staff and students were asked to nominate someone from the Trent community who they thought deserved a Kindness Award. The most inspirational act of kindness received a copy of the book Wonder by R.J Palacio. Wonder is about a boy with a facial disfigurement who starts a new school and how his peers react to him. It looks at lots of themes around bullying including acceptance, identity and showing kindness.
