Oxfordshire Book Awards

Posted on: 19/11/2019

The Book Group members were very lucky to be invited to the Oxfordshire Book Awards hosted by Oxford High School. Prior to the awards our students read the shortlisted books and voted for their favourites. Schools across Oxfordshire all came together to celebrate the winning books and to see the authors take to the stage to accept their awards. The audience were treated to music, stories, poems and a live interview, followed by tea and a chance to meet the authors. It was an inspirational afternoon!

Caitlin from The Henry Box Schools' journalism club wrote the following:

On Wednesday 13th November nine of our students got the chance to visit Oxford High School for the Oxfordshire Book Awards. There were three categories and each was won by a worthy winner. the students had a great time listening to the authors talk, socialising with other schools and eating cake!
