Bennett, visited today, plus there was a themed bake-off to raise funds for the charity BookTrust and a quiet read-a-thon is being held this afternoon for students ‘to really get stuck into a story and relax’, with refreshments provided.

Miss Sophie Palmer, assistant head teacher and leader for English, said: “The main aim of World Book Day is to encourage students to explore the pleasures of books and reading. There is a growing body of evidence which illustrates the importance of reading for pleasure for both educational purposes as well as personal development. At Worthing High School, we believe that reading is absolutely fundamental to your child’s success, both in school and beyond.”
