Penistone Grammar School is getting a new school library in April 2020!
We believe that our students deserve a new library and we need your help.
We are sure that you already know how important reading is for all young people. Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in exams than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of the world around them. Research has also highlighted how important reading can be for relaxation and wellbeing.
As a school community we cannot wait to open our new library in June 2020. We want the library to be an inspirational safe space for all of our students and stocked with a wide range of stimulating books for all abilities and interests. We are passionate about the importance of reading and believe that our students deserve to have access to a library and you can really help us. We are looking for donations so we can buy brand new, up to date texts to stock our brand new library.
In return for your generosity we have some exciting rewards outlined below.
Thank you so much for supporting our journey in making every Penistone Grammar School student a reader.
