Big Book Quiz 2014

The 2014 grand final of The Big Book Quiz was held at Wigan Youth Zone On 1st July. We competed against schools from across the North West (but we sadly didn't win!).

The Creative Reading Company reported, "As the sun shone on Wigan Youth Zone, pupils, parents and teachers began to arrive. The atmosphere was lively and energetic as the children began to choose their tables and dress them in their team colours. Many incredible mascots were on display!

The tension in the room was palpable during each round, and lots of frantic, whispered discussions could be heard after each question. At the end of it all, the winners were declared to be The Book Worms from Ladybridge High School in Bolton. A fantastic performance from them! The runners up were, The Super Whippets from St. Bede’s Ormskirk, and in third place, (my favourite team name of the year!) Priory and Prejudice from Penwortham Priory, Preston.

Farnell Jaguar, sponsors of the final, brought a fantastic looking top-of-the-range sports car for us all to drool over, which was very kind of them. Shaun Wane, Wigan Warrior’s coach, was also in attendance to present the prizes to all our top three teams. It was indeed a star studded affair. I’m hoping to get Leonardo Di Caprio to come next year if he isn’t too busy!"
