It took a dramatic tie-break with jittery fingers on buzzers to find the overall winners of the 2019 TSF Readers’ Cup Grand Final at Thomas’s Battersea. Falconbrook Primary School were eventual victors after extra time and high tension.
The cross-neighbourhood Grand Final saw four schools, Falconbrook from Battersea, Ark John Archer from Clapham, Fulham Primary from Fulham and Oxford Gardens from Kensington come head to head to pit their knowledge on four books in the quick-fire quiz.
The TSF Readers’ Cup, now in its eighth year, involves 160 children from 16 schools. An army of TSF reading mentors encourages the children to read the chosen texts while hopefully igniting their passion for reading.
