At St Bede’s we strive to embed a rich culture of reading for pleasure, endeavouring that when students leave they continue to experience the joy that reading can bring. We have a well-stocked library which is a hive of activity every break and lunch time. Our librarian, Mrs Cain, is available to support students (and staff) choose the right books for them and nurture their passions for reading and literature. Our Reading and Literacy Instagram page (StBedesReads) also shares a monthly ‘Reading Round-Up’ of book suggestions for Key Stage 3 and 4.
Students have weekly ‘Form Time Reading’, in which they have the opportunity to read and discuss a variety of texts: fiction, non-fiction, prose and poetry. We also have fortnightly Library Lessons in English, giving students another opportunity to visit the library and engage with Accelerated Reader.
