Despite nearly taking place a month ago, World Book Day celebrations at Kings Academy Oakwood in Binfield were boosted by a sizeable book voucher donation from Taylor Wimpey West London. 

The school received a £250 book voucher from the homebuilder in support of the national event which took place on Thursday, March 2.

Pupils at Kings Academy Oakwood celebrated the annual event by dressing up as their favourite characters and bringing along their most treasured books.
