Gordonstoun Literacy Drive

In conjunction with the English Department, Mrs MacCallum (Director of Teaching and Learning) is promoting a whole school literacy drive to foster the love of reading amongst the students.

All adult members of the school - from the Governors to the teaching staff to the operations staff - have been asked to display a poster in their office or place of work which states what they are currently reading. It can be anything from The Angling Times to The Complete Works of Shakespeare with a myriad of genres and styles in between. Our pictures show some of the staff and students with their current books to demonstrate that lots of people, no matter what age they are or where they are, like to read for pleasure.
