Reading at Kirk Hallam Academy

‘The world we are preparing our students to succeed in is one bound together by words and phrases. Our students learn their literature, history, math, science, or art via a firm foundation of strong reading skills. When we teach students to read with precision, rigor, and insight, we are truly handing over the key to the kingdom. Of all the subjects we teach reading is first among equals.’

The above quote represents why we believe that being able to read well is so important. Our scholars need to be able read fluently with precision and enthusiasm so they can excel in examinations and give them the chance to choose their own futures. Being exposed to a wide range of texts and vocabulary means they will be equipped with the necessary cultural capital to be able to contribute to society whenever they chose to leave Kirk Hallam Academy.
