Rise and Read

Rise and Read is our brand new scheme offered to Year 7, where students spend 30 minutes at the start of the school day being involved in reading activities. The aim behind the scheme is to allow students access to engaging storytelling and explorative literature which they may not experience elsewhere in the school curriculum. During this, students will become engaged in reading through teacher and pupil discussion and also by experiencing the stories in a live interactive way, thus promoting a love of reading.
