Book Club

The Pendle SCR Book Club meets regularly to discuss all manner of books from across the literary genres, suggested by our SCR members.

Over the last year we have read a wide range of books, including The Dry by Jane Harper, The Body Lies by Jo Baker and The Party by Elizabeth Day.  We always welcome new members, and enjoy a monthly catch up over tea and biscuits discussing our latest reads!    For more details, join our Book Club Facebook group


In addition to the SCR book club, Pendle College also has a free book swap! In the College foyer there is a bookcase full of books - please help yourself - we also really welcome any donations!

Inter-college SCR quiz winners

Staff Quiz

After the fantastic success of the quiz over the last two years, the colleges will run another Inter-College Staff Quiz throughout Michaelmas Term. The questions are ‘pub quiz’ level (not University Challenge level!), and teams will be able to confer with each other to help enhance a sense of team spirit and college pride. It is envisaged that the quiz will take place from week 2 to week 10, every Wednesday, between 12.30-1.30pm in college spaces around campus. You do not need to be available every week as the College Office will organise a rota.  

If you’re interested in joining the team, and would like to put yourself forward for a few rounds (or all of them!) just email the College Office.
