Alternative Reading List

Welcome to the new Alternative Reading List, created by the pupils at Urmston Grammar. It is made up of recommendations from readers in both Upper and Lower School, plus the 30 most borrowed books from the Reading Room.

Simply click on a cover to see a short review written by one of our pupils and then start reading!

We do not currently have reviews for every title in the list, and we would love to hear your thoughts on them. Please submit your reviews to ARL@urmstongrammar.org.uk !
