Supporting Reading for Pleasure and Literacy
Students are encouraged to keep reading anything and everything.
- Quiet reading library lessons for year 7 & 8 classes are held every fortnight in the library. This provides the opportunity to read quietly and to choose books to take home.
- Reading lists are provided to support reading choice.
- Accelerated Reader is a reading programme which is used by the English department and supported by the library.
Please click on the sidebar to read about this in more detail.
- Special events are held throughout the year to celebrate reading and literacy. World Book Day is celebrated in March. Our Readathon raised over £500 in February 2019 .
