We recognise the immense value that reading for pleasure can bring to the lives of our students, and in our promotion of reading for pleasure, we hope to inspire a lifelong love of reading in our students.

Our school library is well stocked with a huge range of exciting titles.  Students visit the library regularly in English in KS3 and the library hosts a variety of events to promote reading.

We also have dedicated reading channels on Teams for each year group, where we promote age appropriate books.  These could be linked to events in the news, events in the school calendar, or based on teacher recommendations.

Texts which we promote are chosen due to a variety of factors, including their educational, historical and aesthetic significance, as well as being engaging and relevant to our students and their studies.  We also factor in our diverse student body when choosing texts, and ensure that there is diverse representation of culture, gender, ethnicity and sexuality.
