About Read for My School

The competition aims to challenge children to read as much as they can, explore new and different types of books and get talking about the books they've read.


Read for My School is for all children, whether they are confident readers or if they're still searching for a story they love. There is a book for every child, and not only can this competition help them find it, but there are also lots of prizes to be won too.


There are many prizes available for both schools and pupils as part of this year's competition. Towers of books, education vouchers worth £1000 and a trip to the Read for My School national event in London are on offer.

Teachers can register for the competition from 20 January until 17 March.
