Oxfordshire Book Awards

We are delighted to be attending the Oxfordshire Book Awards today at Abingdon School.


The Oxfordshire Book Awards is a popular reading shadowing scheme. In a similar manner to the Carnegie Medal, a long list of titles are nominated and then shortlisted, and then Secondary, Primary and Picture Book winners and runners up are announced at an annual awards ceremony. See the winners here

Schools’ students read along with the judging process as part of each school’s reading-for-pleasure strategy, having fun discovering new literature and voting on who they think should win. Participating schools and their students are invited to the annual Awards Ceremony.

RM Books is proud to sponsor these awards.

RM Books provides an affordable way for your students to read some of the nominated books in ebook form. Many are available to rent for short time periods (7 or 30 days), which may make whole-class concurrent reading less costly that buying lots of paper copies of a nominated book.
