Standish Speedy Readers


Welcome to the first blog of Standish Community High School’s very first reading blog, Standish Speedy Readers!
Our name was chosen after a competition and we have also designed our own logo that you can see below.
We meet every Monday dinnertime in Pupil Services with Mrs Taylor where we pick books to read as a group and there are always drinks and snacks and lots of friendly chat too!
Stay tuned for lots of content such as book reviews, recommendations, opinion posts and much more!
