Hereford Cathedral School Book Club
Group status: We are all reading hard in preparation for our County Carnegie Day on 15 June. On that day, we meet up with over 100 pupils from other book clubs all over Herefordshire, to discuss, argue and vote for the book we think should win this year.
We run two book clubs at Hereford Cathedral School: one for Years 7 & one for Years 8 & 9. Year 7 meet weekly, year 8 fortnightly with the school librarian Mrs Nelson. We enjoy lots of passionate discussion, eat mountains of biscuits and treat ourselves to an occasional lunch with the Book Club at Bishop's School, or trip to the cinema!
