Priory’s Head of English, Mrs Gidden, has been really impressed with many of our multi-talented pupils lately and wanted to highlight their love of reading while excelling at other pursuits.

This week we interviewed Year 8 pupil, Scarlett.

Scarlett is riding high as one of Mrs Gidden’s Cool Readers.  She is a keen equestrian as well as enjoying a love of reading.

“I am currently reading Love Letters by Ann Cassidy.

“It’s quite serious, it’s about a girl who receives love letters thinking it’s her best friend’s brother but in fact it is her boss, who has a wife and a child.

“It’s the fall-out from this, with the boss being sent to jail for harassment.

Priory’s Head of English, Mrs Gidden, has been really impressed with many of our multi-talented pupils lately and wanted to highlight their love of reading while excelling at other pursuits.

This week we interviewed Year 8 pupil, Scarlett.

“It’s educational as it gives out various messages such as don’t trust people just because they are nice, don’t keep stalking to yourself and keep the evidence.

“It is interesting so far. 

“My favourite book is Blind Beauty by KM Peyton.”

Scarlett has been riding for over three years.  “I go to Eccleston Equestrian Centre, I have done various competitions including dressage and showjumping.  I enjoy the adrenaline of it all and the technical side of it.


I would like to do something which involves horses when I get older.”
