On the 11th October 2021, the Royal Society Children’s Book Prize was launched here at QEGS. We have worked closely with the Royal Society and this book award for the last few years and we are absolutley delighted to discover that QEGS have been chosen again to take part.

An eager group of Year 7 pupils have settled well into their new roles on the judging panel and they will now meet weekly to review the shortlisted titles. After thorough deliberations the judging panel will allocate points to each book and relay them back to the Royal Society who will collate points nationwide to determine a winner.

The final will be streamed live in schools for all who take part.

We believe this is a fantastic way to enthuse children about science and of course books!

The finals will take place in February 2022.
