Each year students from local schools read and review four chosen books.

This year’s winning book was ‘The Red Ribbon’ by Lucy Adlington, a tale of friendship, kindness and love within Auschwitz-Birkinau concentration camp.

A student from each participating school read an excerpt from one of the shortlisted books.

Librarian Kimbley Firth (pictured with Ark William Parker students) said: “Our students were a credit to the Academy.

“Sam Tomlin did a fantastic job reading an excerpt from ‘The 1,000 year old boy’.

“Well done to all those who took part.

“It was a great evening!”
