Literacy Festival

At Sutton Grammar School for Girls we are proud to celebrate literature by holding a literacy festival each year. In previous years we have hosted author events with Holly Smale, Cathy Cassidy, Robin Stevens and Tanya Landman. The Literacy Festival has also involved fantastic events such as The Sutton Girls Book Bake Off, Mad Hatters Tea Party, Scholastic book fair, book themed scavenger hunt and the Readathon, as well as various workshops and competitions.
