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

Before the school closure we interviewed Year 10 pupil, Abi.
Abi has taken a step back in time to read ‘Death on the Nile’ by Agatha Christie.

Year 10 Abi admits she is enjoying the Hercule Poirot book.

“I have watched quite a few of the movie versions, like Murder on the Orient Express, and so I decided to read the books,” said Abi.

“I like mysteries and finding out who the murderer is and I have enjoyed Death on the Nile. I worked out who the murderers were at the beginning but then I did change my mind throughout the book!

“I also like the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson series of books.”

Abi’s favourite subject is engineering and she enjoys the STEM (Science, Technology, English and Maths) subjects.

“I want to do something with these in the future.”

Abi is a Peer Mentor and also enjoys photography in her spare time.

“My dog AJ is a border collie and he is my main subject!”
