Weydon launch annual WMAT Book Award

A team of Year 9 and 10 students from Weydon will be judges in the 3rd annual WMAT Book Award.

Their job is to read the 6 shortlisted titles chosen by fellow students from a longlist of Young Adult Fiction titles by British authors published between 1st September 2022 and 31st August 2023. 

As well as being a reader, they will also be book critics, considering ‘the three Es’ (enjoyment, enrichment and engagement) when deciding which of the six books should win the coveted title of WMAT book of the Year 2024. 


The shortlisted books are:

'What the World doesn’t see' by Mel Darbon

'Mindwalker' by Kate Dylan

'A Dark Inheritance' by H.F. Askwith

'This Summer’s Secrets' by Emily Barr

'Wrecked' by Louisa Reid

'HappyHead by Josh Silver


Students from Woolmer Hill, Farnham Heath End and Rodborough Schools will join the Weydon students on 27th June to vote for the winning title.
