The Redhill Academy Trust Book Award

The Redhill Academy Trust Book Award

This year we have launched the very first Redhill Academy Trust Book Award here at The Carlton Academy.  Six fabulous books published in 2019 have been shortlisted and all of our secondary academies are taking part.  A small group of Year 7 students in each school will be looking at the six titles in depth whilst all of Year 7 and 8 students across the Trust will be voting in the first three of the categories during their Accelerated Reader lessons during January.  The five award categories are:

  • Best Front Cover
  • Best Blurb
  • Favourite First Line
  • Favourite Character
  • Favourite Overall Book

Here at The Carlton Academy we have a wonderful group of Year 7 students who will be meeting weekly to discuss, review and consult on everything to do with this award – as it’s in its first year they will be incredibly important in helping to shape the Award as we move forward.  Waterstones in Nottingham are also showcasing our award and over the coming months will be displaying reviews from Year 7 students from all of our academies to promote the books in their store.  In March 2020 we will be hosting our other Year 7 groups from across the Redhill Academy Trust to announce our award winners along with a visit and presentation from Darren Simpson, one of our shortlisted authors.
