Bookworms at Thomas Gainsborough School in Great Cornard have been battling each other in an annual literacy competition.

More than 200 students took part in a series of Book Mastermind heats in their English lessons, with 10 young people making it through to the finals, which saw questions around their chosen book as well as general knowledge.

The school’s overall winner was Year 7 student Lukus Granderson, who scored a full 28 marks over both rounds, including about his chosen book, The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul by Jeff Kinney.

Jo Hilson, head of Chamberlain House at Thomas Gainsborough School, said: “It was the highest standard of answers we have yet seen, so a huge well done to all of the finalists.”

Lukus will now go on to compete against the area’s top youngsters in the final at Sybil Andrews Academy in Bury St Edmunds on March 13.
