BOOKS and biscuits are proving a popular combination for students in Hungerford.

John O’ Gaunt has launched a new inspirational book club called ‘Book Chat and Biscuits’, aimed at inspiring hundreds of students to further and wider reading.

JOG staff are passionate about getting students reading for fun and pleasure, with the pursuit helping in every single other subject at school and beyond.

Last summer English GCSE results at JOG were exceptional.

School Librarian Nicola Chester said:

“This new club is proving extremely popular. We bring students together to discuss books that they have read while they enjoy biscuits.

“In the last group they chose one line from the book and had discussions about the main characters.”
