Reading

At Queensbridge our vision is to have a school where pupils are empowered with the master skill: Reading

We read for learning and we read for pleasure, widely and often. Through all aspects of school life, we strive to ensure that every student has a reading-rich experience throughout Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. This gives our learners the best start in terms of both academic success and personal wellbeing.

Our library is literally and metaphorically at the heart of our school, where it is a well maintained and popular hub of creativity and learning. Mrs Chilton, our Reading Engagement Mentor and School Librarian, is on hand at all times for advice and support with matching pupils to their next favourite read.

Check out our news stories below to get a flavour of some of the wonderful reading and book related events that are happening in the library, in lessons, and beyond at QB.
