Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader All Year 7 and 8 students participate in the Accelerated Reader Program.

The Accelerated Reader program is a computerised program that tests  reading comprehension.  Students select books on their reading level,  which is determined by the ‘Star Reading Assessment’. The books are read  independently and once finished a comprehension test is taken on the  computer.  Each book is worth a certain amount of points based on its  length and reading level.

Accelerated Reader enables both the  Librarian and English Staff to monitor the progress of each student and  guide them to appropriate books for their level and interest.

Recommended reading for KS3 & KS4
