Supporting Reading for Pleasure and Literacy
Students are encouraged to keep reading anything and everything.
- Library lessons for year 7 & 8 are held every fortnight in the library. English teachers read aloud from a book selected by the librarian and students read along in their own copies. They also have time to browse the library and choose books to take home.
- Reading lists are provided to support reading choice.
- 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.
- Diversity book club. We look forward to launching this shortly.
- The School Reading List Recommendations and reviews. Updated monthly
- BookTrust The UK's largest children's reading charity
