Our wonderful Prep School pupils let their imaginations run wild for World Book Day as they transformed into iconic characters from their favourite books.

Pupils and Academic Staff, from Nursery to Year 8, showcased their creativity as they dressed up as inspirational characters from the pages of their most-loved childhood stories – from Harry Potter and Dr Seuss, to Disney and Paw Patrol.

Alongside a fun day of dressing up and raising money, pupils also gathered in our Prep School Library and Reading Café, which opened at the beginning of this academic year, for special readings, word discovery, spelling bees and creative writing activities.

All the money raised from donations and purchasing £1 books will go to Book Aid International.

Launched on 23rd April 1995, World Book Day was created to celebrate importance and value of reading.

World Book Day founder, Baroness Gail Rebuck, said: “We wanted to do something to reposition reading and our message is the same today as it was then – that reading is fun, relevant, accessible, exciting, and has the power to transform lives.”

Now recognised in over 100 countries, the World Book Day mission is to promote the fun of reading, help children develop vocabulary and literacy skills, and to ensure that every child and young person has a book of their own.
