The winning group scored a total of 338 points, pushing them just ahead of the John Gray High School Sherlocks who were runners up with 331 points.

“Battle of the Books was excellent this year and all participants were very impressive,” said Paul Robinson, one of the competition’s organisers. “We must give a special mention to Cayman International School Puss in Boots in the junior division. They scored a total of 344 points – only two points less than our joint junior champions.”
