Well done to those Year 7 pupils who took up a TSS challenge before starting with us in September; it was nice to see so many enthusiastic pupils getting stuck into our annual reading challenge. This year we also introduced a writing challenge to encourage our new starters to push themselves even further. This proved popular and quite a number of pupils took part in both challenges.

It was clear that pupils had taken lots of time and effort to complete their challenges which made judging very tricky so after selecting the winners of each category, we decided we also wanted to award several commendations for effort, so a further sixteen awards were handed out.

Thanks to all the pupils who took part.
