Nearly 400 donations were received at the event which aimed to promote the joy and value of reading across a range of styles and topics.

No money was exchanged at the swap, rather participants received tokens when donating books which they could then use to acquire new books.

Among the hundreds of books were classic novels and modern literature, to science textbooks and fantasy fiction.

Carmina McConnell, assistant principal, said: 'This was a very successful and enjoyable event, giving all those who joined us hours of reading treats for no financial cost. It provided a superb opportunity to extend the range of discussions about books, share favourite texts and explore with colleagues and students just how invaluable reading is.'
