Unity schools unite for Book Mastermind competition
Around 400 local students have showcased their “astounding” literacy knowledge at a Book Mastermind.
Organised by Unity Schools Partnership, secondary schools from across the Trust joined together to take part in the competition.
Perry Lunn, from Thomas Gainsborough School, was crowned overall winner after dropping just two points out of 30 across two rounds of questions on The Hunger Games and general knowledge.
Perry took part in the grand final alongside 11 other students from TGS, County High School, Breckland School and Newmarket Academy.
He narrowly beat second place, Rosa Williams from County High, and fellow TGS student, Emily Head, who took third.
Organiser Mandy Harvey said: “The level of book knowledge was astounding. Huge congratulations to everyone who took part.”
Unity Schools Partnership Secondary Lead for English and Reading, Ben Godsal, who awarded the trophy to the winner, added: “I was blown away by the ability of these brilliant young people to answer questions under pressure.
“What a fantastic advert these students are. I am already looking forward to next year’s competition.”
