Recommended Reading

Here are some recommendations for books young people might enjoy. We have put them in the age appropriate lists and hope that they will encourage independent reading.

Most of these titles are available in the school library:

Accelerated Reading

All pupils in Year 7 and 8 also participate in our Accelerated Reading programme, which involves a reading session in the library and a computer-based quiz to confirm understanding.

This programme has been shown to have great impact nationally and we regularly see substantial improvements in pupils’ reading ages over the course of a year. It personalises reading for each pupil and makes reading practice fun.

Accelarated Reader book finder – a website where you can check if a book is included in the Accelerated Reader scheme and what level it is.

Scholastic Book Club

You can purchase books for you child through Scholastic website and help our school get free books and resources. Many thanks to all families who have supported us in this way already!
