Students do not need to register for the Challenge if they are not participating as part of a school entry.

Instead, please download and fill in a Student Reading Record for each child or young person participating in the Premier’s Reading Challenge (please note they are double sided, with the Challenge Guidelines on the back).

– Students in Reception to Year 6 need to read 8 books from the PRC booklist, and the remaining 4 are free choice.
– Years 7 to 9 need to read 4 books from the PRC book list, and the remaining 8 are free choice.
– Years 10 to 12 are all free choice.

Once your students’ reading records are complete, please send them in to the PRC team by the end of September.

Please ensure the date of birth and previous school fields are filled in. This will help match students to any previous participation records and ensure they receive the correct award. This information is not used for any other purpose, and is not made public at any time.

The ‘previous school’ field relates to the last school at which the student completed the Challenge prior to the current year.

The form can be submitted at any time before 30 September 2024 via email to

Or you can post the forms to:

Department for Education
Premier’s Reading Challenge
ATTN: PRC Administration Officer
