2022 sees the return of the spectacular READ Gloucestershire!

READ Gloucestershire! in 2021 was AMAZING, with pupils in schools across the county reading incredible stories, watching mind-blowing author events, and working together to get books and storytellers to children in hospital. Based on this success, it’d be ridiculous if we didn’t run it again…so we are!

Between January and July 2022, we are once again turning Gloucestershire into a haven for reading of all kinds, helping pupils across KS1, KS2, and KS3 to love reading for pleasure. With more books, more author events, and so many ways for you to get involved, it’s going to be better than ever before!

Run Readathon® 3rd to 18th March

Create an account on the portal or, if your school already has an account, log in. Once you’re in, you can order a Readathon® kit to join other Gloucestershire schools reading and raising around World Book Day.
