Competitions and Reading Champions Challenges

As part of our ongoing work to support schools, we run Reading Champions Challenges every term. These challenges are designed to encourage reading for pleasure in schools, as well as developing reading stamina and increasing reading diversity. Read more about our Reading Champions programme.

Our challenges and competitions are open to and completely free for all UK schools.

To be sure you are first to hear about our reading challenges throughout the coming year, sign up for Resources and Training newsletter updates.

Here you'll find a full collection of our challenges, with all the guidelines and supporting resources that will enable you to run them at any time in your school. While the entry deadline may have passed we encourage you to use the ideas for classroom learning, or you may even choose to award your own certificates or small prizes for an in-school challenge.
