Big Book Quiz 2018
On Tuesday, 6 March pupils and staff gathered together for the annual Big Book Quiz - an opportunity to buy books, eat great food and demonstrate students' wealth of bookish knowledge.
With Mrs Read, Head of English in charge, 8 rounds of quizzical delights including a focus on children's classics, teen fiction and books we all should read, followed with fierce competition at every stage.
The plasticine round added to the points scored with some excellent creations of Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland. The overall winner was team LIMPETS with Quizard of Oz coming a close second and Dorm 8 in third place.
The Yellow Lighted Bookshop from Tetbury ran a roaring trade in classic, teen fiction and manga books and many students went away with stacks of new literary delights.
Many thanks to Mr Roberts, Mr Corkett and Mrs Read for creating the quiz questions and to Miss Mott and Mr and Mrs Brealy for their support.
Special thanks must go to pupils Kieze and Martina for keeping score throughout the evening and presenting prizes at the end.
The Big Book Quiz will be back next year!
