It’s time to set off – on the Pemberley Reading Quest!

At Pemberley Academy we take an utmost pride in the love for reading that our children and staff have.

To encourage reading for pleasure we have put together the ‘Pemberley Reading Quest’. The quest includes 6 books per year group chosen by the staff at Pemberley. These books are in our opinion fantastic and must reads for children across their primary school lives.

We hope this quest can inspire, guide and help your child’s love of reading grow. Many of the titles are available in our school library but we do encourage use of local libraries where possible.

Check out the launch video on our youtube channel:
