Our Warwickshire Book Awards!

We are very proud of our three Warwickshire Book Awards, which we run annually. Our trained and experienced library team carefully select the shortlisted books. Pupils/students read these books and vote for their favourite. The winner is decided solely by them and we think this makes our Awards really special! Schools from across Warwickshire take part and are invited to the Final Award Ceremony for two of the Awards (WJBA and WSBA), where we invite the  shortlisted authors to attend. This is always a lovely event and a fantastic celebration of reading that we hope inspires young people across Warwickshire.

The Awards are aimed at the following year groups:

  • Warwickshire Junior Book Award (WJBA): Years 5/6 (Summer Term)
  • Warwickshire Secondary Book Award (WSBA): Years 7/8 (Spring Term)
  • Warwickshire Year 9 Book Award (W9BA): Year 9 (Autumn Term)
