Welcome to Bookbuzz
Bookbuzz is a reading programme from BookTrust that aims to help schools inspire a love of reading in 11 to 13-year-olds.
Participating schools give their students the opportunity to choose their own book to take home and keep from a list of 17 titles. They are all carefully selected by a panel of experts to ensure quality, suitability and to encourage reading for pleasure.
We understand the challenges that schools are currently facing and want to make sure that no one misses out on their Bookbuzz orders.
We’ve extended the registration to close on 9th October 2020.
Find out how Bookbuzz can get your Year 7 and 8 students excited about reading. All this for just £3 per student.
From non-fiction reads for curious minds, to fast-paced page-turners, Bookbuzz has something for everyone.
Bookbuzz coordinators from signed-up Bookbuzz schools can login to find guides, resources and the Bookbuzz film.
