Our Year 7s are already busy taking part in our Reading Rewards Scheme led by our English Department.

The students complete an online reading log – accessible through laptops, tablets and phones – and record their reading in a league table against other students.

There are blogs to contribute too and lots of prizes, ranging from certificates to books and stationary to bookmarks.

Sam Sullivan, Assistant Headteacher, said: “There is a direct correlation between being an active reader and performing well in exam results – but just as importantly reading is relaxing, engaging and exciting too. We encourage all Year 7s to get involved and all parents to set the example in reading too.”
