This year, over 123,400 entries were submitted and these have now been whittled down to a long-list of 4,500 entries, which will now go to the Reading Agency to be short-listed.

Shortly before the Easter holidays, some of Cranleigh Prep pupils submitted their own entries to the competition.

Congratulations to Henry R, Maddie W, Ambrose W, Bradley B, Will O’C and Fraser A who have been selected for the next round of judging.
