Heathmere School

Since 2014, we have been working with Heathmere Primary School in Roehampton on a variety of projects, getting involved where we can to get children reading and support the wonderful work of the Heathmere teachers.

From setting up a Breakfast Book Club, helping set up 2 Little Free Libraries in the playground as well as helping them establish and stock a library within the school, it has been a pleasure to see a school so determined to build an environment for children to discover and enjoy reading. We also supported a Pop-Up project at Heathmere, and have provided book gifts for Year 5 and 6 pupils and school leavers.

Now, we are excited to be providing books for the first Roehampton Reads Festival, which will take place at Heathmere School on Saturday 23rd June. With a great line-up of events, it will be a wonderful chance for children and families to listen to authors, poets, illustrators and performers in this festival of words, books and stories.

One of the titles we have sent to Heathmere School, The Explorer by Katherine Rundell (who has chosen our June Book of the Month!)
