Here's what our Cool Readers Club is all about...

These are our reading stars put forward by their English teacher.  We interview them about their current book, what they like reading about and what they like to do when they’re not reading.  Introducing Ethan...

Ethan has enjoyed the Redwall Series by Brian Jacques. 

The Year 8 is currently reading ‘The Sable Quean’ which is the 21st novel in the series, the last to be published before the author’s death although there is a 22nd novel which was published after Mr Jacques died. 

“It’s all based around Redwall Abbey which is where woodland creatures live and the ravaging hordes are stealing children," said Ethan.

“I like this series a lot. I have read a lot of the books and nearly finished now. I like fantasy and adventure novels.” 

When he is not reading, Ethan can be found playing as a striker for Lostock Hall Blacks. 

“We go training once a week then play games at weekend.” 
Ethan’s favourite subject at Priory is Science. 

“I like space and the infinity of it all, the stars and the planets. 

“When I leave school I would like to do either something with computers or be an astrophysicist.” 

Ethan's English teacher, Mrs Elliott, added, "Ethan is a great pupil.  He always works incredibly hard during his English lessons and is one of a rare breed who I have to 'reprimand' for not putting his reading book away!  He's been reading the Redwall series with such passion that I might well grab a copy (I'm sure he can recommend one of the series).  Ethan's ability to focus will surely bode well for any future career where he finds that similar passion."
