Group status: Our school has two Reading groups which meet duing the break-time on Wednesdays. We have two groups because our we have two break-times.

Ruislip Readers

The year 9/10/11 BookClub is reading the Carnegie Books. There are 10 year 9 students in the group, who meet every Wednesday break-time to share the books we are reading. This term we have been looking at the Latin and Greek languages and their influence on the English we speak and read today. We will be joining with three other local schools later in the term for an afternoon of much discussion and debate before making group presentations on the merits of the various titles.
