2022 sees the return of the spectacular READ Gloucestershire!

Building off the astonishing success of the campaign in 2021, READ Gloucestershire! 2022 is ready to get underway! We want schools from across Gloucestershire to become immersed in our county-wide celebration of reading, and with so many amazing, easy ways of getting involved, we hope to see you all there.

What’s coming up over the next few months? Well, we’re very glad you asked…

Throughout the campaign, our Author-in-Residence, M.G. Leonard, has provided Gloucestershire with fantastic virtual workshops based on her best-selling and award-winning titles, Twitch and the Adventures on Trains series.

If you want to super charge reading in your school, run a Readathon®! You can order your school’s kit below. The money raised through this sponsored read will help some of the county’s most vulnerable children, buying brand new books and storytellers for children at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.


Join the Gloucestershire Readathon!

Order your kit to join other Gloucestershire schools who are reading and raising to buy books for seriously ill children. With incredible resources provided in each kit, reading becomes even more exciting.

2022 Author-in-Residence – M.G. Leonard

Award-winning and best-selling author, M. G. Leonard, has produced a range of brilliant, Key Stage-tailored supporting videos for pupils, and a CPD session to help teachers and librarians to incorporate reading for pleasure into their work.

Our free web app, Track My Read – make reading count

Track My Read is brilliantly simple: pupils log what they read, how long for and how much they enjoyed it; in return, teachers and librarians get valuable reading behaviours data, providing a wealth of evidence and insights about pupils’ reading choices.
