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, Caitlin.
Caitlin enjoys English – but wants to be a mechanical engineer in the future.

Caitlin is currently reading the ninth book in the ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’ series by Derek Landy.

“I have read all of them so far, they are so different from this world and they have magic in them, I like fantasy books,” said Caitlin.

“The 13th in the series comes out in April so I still have some catching up to do!

“This is called ‘The Dying of the Light’ and is a strong plot, with a lot of twists and turns which keeps you on the edge of your seat.

“I like English but my favourite subject is maths. I want to do something with engineering, perhaps be a mechanical engineer.  There are engineering lessons in our timetable so I do them as well.”

Caitlin is also a Peer Mentor and has recently started her Duke of Edinburgh bronze award.

“I am looking forward to the Duke of Edinburgh activities, it’s a good one to have on your CV.”
