At Wollaston we are committed to promoting reading for pleasure and have recently invested in a new library system, which students can access remotely.

All students in Year’s 7 & 8 are enrolled on the Accelerated Reader system; this scheme is co-ordinated by the English department and the librarian. Students are tested once a term to monitor their reading levels and will then be given an independent reading level and target to achieve each term. Accelerated Reader is a powerful tool which has over 25,000 quizzes to test student’s comprehension on the books they have read, it also provides students with instant feedback and progress reports for staff.

Quizzes can be completed in the library before school, at break time, at lunch time and after school, as well as certain English lessons or during registration time.

Visit www.arbookfind.co.uk to search the database to see if a book has a quiz and to check the level.


Reading Recommendations

If there is a book that you would recommend to a friend and we don’t stock it, come and speak to the librarian and we’ll see if we can stock it.


Book Club

We are looking to start a student book club, let Mrs Henning know if you are interested.


Student Librarian

A student librarian helps to put resources away, issue and return resources and may also be asked to help with displays, literacy competitions or assist a student with homework.

If you would like more information, speak to Mrs Henning.
