The Derbyshire County Council-organised event saw 27 teams of up to four students attempt to answer 100 questions on books ranging from classical literature to modern children’s tales.

The winning team was Highfields School in Matlock, with St Thomas More Catholic School, Buxton second and Buxton Community School and Lady Manners School, Bakewell, joint third.

The top teams received plaques and the winners also received a trophy.
