We are delighted to announce that our school has been selected as one of the 24 judging schools for the Lancashire Book of the Year 2024 award

Lancashire Book of the Year is the longest running young people's regional book award in the country. The award remains one of the few book awards in which young people themselves are solely responsible for choosing both the shortlist and the overall winning book. 

The award is voted for by pupils in year 9 from secondary schools around the county. Each school is given a collection of books, submitted by publishers as being the best books they have produced for the 12-14 age group. The young people then read and shortlist the books before choosing the overall winner.

We can't wait to find out which books we'll be reading! We shall keep you posted as the judging progresses.
