Spring Reading Competition


Throughout April, Falmouth School ran a Spring Reading Competition, where students were encouraged to read as often as possible and record how much time they spent doing this.

The Easter holidays provided a great opportunity for our students to relax and enjoy a book in the sunshine, with reading hopefully becoming a normal part of their daily routine. There are many significant benefits of reading, including: stress relief; vocabulary expansion; improved writing skills and increased empathy. Not to mention the thrill of exploring new worlds, characters and ideas! We really hope that all students who took part got to enjoy these benefits and will continue on their reading journeys.

The results for this competition were outstanding, with entries from all year groups. We’re delighted to announce the following winners:
