Design a National Book Token Competition

As part of our celebrations for World Book Day, each year we ask our KS3 students to design their own book token – and this year was no exception! The quality of the designs was outstanding and demonstrated a love of literature and featured exceptional artwork. The very best entries across each year group were scrutinised by a highly esteemed judge, Mrs Jaunbocus-Cooper, who chose one design from each to be the overall winner. This was a very difficult task as they really were quite extraordinary – even Rick Astley featured in amongst them!

Congratulations to our three winners, who will each receive a £10 book token:

Year 7 winner: Holly Sachro

Year 8 winner: Alexandra Simpson

Year 9 winner: Bernard Kwong

The best of the entries from across the school will now be entered into the national competition – fingers crossed that one of our pupils can get their design made into a real book token to go on sale in shops nationwide – they are certainly in with a shot!
