Here's what our Cool Readers Club is all about...

These are our reading stars put forward by their English teacher.  We interview them about their current book, what they like reading about and what they like to do when they’re not reading.  Introducing Phoebe...

Phoebe likes to uncover the truth and finding out ‘whodunnit’.  The Year 7 is currently reading ‘Death Sets Sail’ by Robin Stevens. 

“It’s about two girls who go on a holiday to Egypt and go on the boat on the Nile. There is a murder and they have to solve it. 

“I enjoy detective novels and trying to work out who committed the crime. 

“Robin Stevens is my favourite author and there are about 10 in this series and I have read them all, they are all independent of each other. 

“I also like stories about World War 2, how people lived through the war.” 

Her favourite subject is English. 

“I have started writing some stories, I have a lot of ideas, and I would like to be an author."

Outside of school, Phoebe plays hockey for Preston Hockey Club and trains twice a week. 

Phoebe's English teacher, Mr Owen, added, "Phoebe is an enthusiastic reader, and she has clearly enjoyed a journey across different genres this academic year. She has a creative mind, and this is serving her well as she continues to improve in English. Her kind and conscientious attitude is infectious."
