Every year, we hold a Book Fair here in Barr Beacon School. It’s not only great fun for the students but it also promotes reading for pleasure and helps our school analyse pupils’ reading preferences. For 4 days in November students in year 7, 8 and 9 had a chance to browse our Scholastic shelves during their English lessons. Year 10 and 11 browsed before and after school. Pupils showed great interest in new releases, discounted books and especially stationery! We had over £200 worth of online orders and over £600 was spent by the school on books for Free School Meals students in Y7 and 8. With the total of £807.45, we have beaten last year’s sales! Many thanks to all the pupils and staff that attended. Happy Reading!
