Reading for pleasure at The Bulmershe School

Reading for pleasure is encouraged and celebrated at the Bulmershe School and our aim is to create a reading culture that helps to enrich pupils’ academic and personal growth. The benefits of reading are boundless: it develops pupils’ vocabulary and comprehension skills, has a positive impact on their ability to retain and recall information and enables them to access and understand the school curriculum. Importantly, it can also reduce stress, help pupils to foster positive relationships and improve their mental well-being.

We strive to provide every student with access to entertaining and culturally diverse fiction to help them make reading for pleasure a habit for life. The Library provides a welcoming and comfortable space for them to explore genres, titles and variety of topics. If you would like more information about reading for pleasure, follow the links below or get in touch.
