The quiz consisted of 80 questions – eight different categories with ten questions each
Team A scored 56/80 and narrowly missed out as runners up but Team B scored an impressive 61/80 to be crowned joint winners with Harris Academy.
Team B will be awarded with a regional trophy and a £20 book token per student. They will now be heading to the grand final on 25 May in London to compete with schools from across the UK to be crowned the National Reading Champions 2022.
Mrs Sheikh, school librarian said, “As part of our World Book Day celebrations we entered this competition for the first time. The students were so excited to be taking part in a national competition and there was a real buzz around the library. It was great to see how both teams had prepared and worked together on this Quiz and they should all be extremely proud of their achievements. We can’t wait for the finals now!"
