New pupils at a school in Nailsea were presented with a free book to welcome them to secondary school life.

The year seven students from Nailsea School, in Mizzymead Road, were treated to a new book from a list of eight titles by bestselling authors.

The books were then given out to the pupils by the student librarians.

School librarian Ellie Taylor organises the free giveaway each year in conjunction with literacy charity BookTrust.

She ensures funds are raised so the school can take part in the worthwhile scheme which promotes and celebrates 
reading for pleasure among students.

Nailsea School’s parent teacher association (PTA) helped to raise the money for the scheme and enjoyed giving the free book to each year seven pupil.

The pupils were delighted to receive a new book to get stuck into. BookTrust gives books 
out to 3.4 million children each year.
