Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

There is a huge amount of evidence and research to say that every child should have the opportunity to read every day. Reading not only increases a child’s vocabulary, progresses language development, fluency and accuracy but also develops curiosity, imagination and encourages children to find a passion for reading which they can take with them into adult life. Reading ability is closely linked to the achievement of pupils in their GCSEs as the complexity of the texts across all exams are a high level. We are making reading outside of school for all our pupils a priority.

It is therefore important that every child should read alone, or with an adult at home for at least twenty minutes a day at home.

In addition to this, students will also complete ‘Morning Reading’ on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8.20am, where they will read a ‘Classic’, a ‘Modern’ and a ‘Non-fiction’ book across the year. More information on this can be found in the ‘Literacy Policy’.

Students are required to bring their reading books to school every day, as part of their daily equipment.

Below you can find the book suggestions for KS3.
