Reading is Power

As part of our commitment to ensuring that all students maximise their potential and are equipped to access the rigors of the KS3 and new KS4 curriculum, all year 7, and 8 students reading is monitored weekly during their English lessons. Their teachers monitor how frequently students are reading and challenge students to read as vicariously as possible. As part of our commitment to ensuring that all students also have access to an online reading intervention programme called Accelerated Reader by Renaissance learning.
