Prep School (Years 4 to 8) Reading Lists
Parents often ask us which books their children should be reading. In some respects, it’s the wrong question to ask – are there any books children shouldn't be reading? – but with children’s free-time seeming ever to shrink, there is certainly merit in searching out the best.

The 8+ tutors we work with have detailed knowledge of the different requirements of individual schools as well as experience of teaching at the 8+ level.
