 Ivanhoe College – A reading school.

 

Reading underpins success across academic subjects. Studies from the National Literacy Trust show there is a positive correlation between reading and attainment 

 

Reading regularly is demonstrated to have a positive impact across all elements of the curriculum.

With our school undertaking an age range change, from 11-14, to 11-16 which will see students at Ivanhoe stay on to take their GCSEs,  having our students read regularly, both for pleasure and function, is of imperative importance to our students' future academic successes.

But our responsibility as educators doesn’t stop at the classroom door. Reading, both for pleasure and for function, is also shown to have a positive impact on:

  • Personal relationships.
  • Financial success.
  • Health and physical wellbeing.
  • Mental health and wellbeing.
  • Cultural awareness.

Put simply – reading is a skill which serves to improve every aspect of a young person’s life. Ivanhoe, as a reading school, is invested in promoting literature that challenges, informs, educates, builds up, and benefits all of the students that study here.

In this section you will find reading recommendations for each subject – both non-fiction and fictional – that have been curated by our subject leaders, links to websites that can aid and assist ours students in their reading, reading forums, and much more.
