Literary Canon

Students will begin their St Mary’s Literary Canon reading journey when they join us in Year 7. During afternoon reading time, students read with their Form Tutor and form group. The book lists from September 2021 can be found below. You will notice that some titles are repeated in multiple year groups, this is because our reading calendar was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
