Sidmouth College pupils are waiting with bated breath to find out if they have been successful in their Guinness World Record attempt.
Some 51 pupils from years seven to 11 packed into the library last Friday as part of the National Book Day world record attempt. The participants watched J K Rowling read the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows before taking part in a quiz.
Librarian Louise Harrison said: “The students left amongst a hubbub of excitement and expectation, looking forward to hearing the results of both our attempt and the quiz.
“We anticipate hearing that the attempt was successful and will proudly display our personalised Guinness World Record Certificate within the school upon receipt.”
