Kirklees World Book Day Quiz 2020

Could it be your school next? 


Kirklees' World Book Day Quiz has become a much-anticipated annual event in the school calendar. It's a chance for your pupils to take part in a celebration of reading and compete against their peers in a fun, fast-paced quiz challenge.


After the huge success of the World Book Day Quiz over the past 7 years, booksplus will be hosting their annual Kirklees World Book Day Quiz for the 8th year running. Many Schools have participated in this hugely popular event with over 140 pupils from 25 schools taking part in this year’s event to battle for the trophy, who will be next year’s champions?


Next year's quiz will take place on Thursday 5 March 2020, 1.30 - 3.45pm at the Huddersfield Town Hall.


The quiz consists of questions taken from our book list of 20 books, there will be 6 questions within each round (6 rounds). 


Your team should be made up of four pupils from Years 5, 6 or 7 (same or mixed year groups). 

As the event falls on World Book Day itself we would like to invite the children and adults to attend the event in fancy dress as one of their favourite book characters (optional). There will be a prize for best costume for both pupil and staff. 

In order to share the excitement of this event, we intend to take photographs during the afternoon which may be featured on Kirklees websites and its social media platforms. Our consent form will be sent out along with the confirmation pack early next year. Please ensure that pupils attending have signed parent/carer permissions for this.


Please download and fill in the attached booking form (under Attachments). The book list is included with the entry form 

Cost is £30 per team (max 2 teams)
