  • ready to be read

    Published 16/11/18

    Thanks to a very generous donation from Gordon’s School Parents’ Association (GSPA), the English Department has bought dozens of literary classics. Now as well as visiting the Library, students will be able to enjoy the use of a ‘mini-library’ in the six dedicated English classrooms. Legendary works of fiction, such as To Kill A Mockingbird, Dracula, and  Frankenstein, have been included as well as more modern works, like The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, and The Fault in Our Stars. This is a great opportunity for students who like to read – and perhaps a greater opportunity for those who don’t, as they are sure to find something interesting within the huge range of genres available at their fingertips!

    Congratulations to Klintworth from Woking, reading History at Exeter University, who correctly answered the question on last night's University Challenge: 'Writing in 1885 for whom did Tennyson provide the epitaph - 'Warrior of God, man's friend not here below, but somewhere dead far in the waste Soudan'?'' The correct answer? General Gordon. The full epitaph: 

    Warrior of God, man’s friend, and tyrant’s foe; Now somewhere dead far in the waste Soudan; Thou livest in all hearts, for all men know; This earth has never borne a nobler man.
