Library Themes

To encourage students to get involved in reading and improving their English skills, reading is encouraged through:-

  • Structured reading for years 7 and 8 in their English lessons.
  • Specialised structured reading support run by Bingley Grammar School's SEN Department for targeted low ability readers, both in lessons and through early morning reading sessions.
  • Promotion of genres through termly Library themes run by the Librarian promoting reading for pleasure. Three authors are also highlighted with each theme to give students a taste of what motivates an author to write and a little about them.

Earlybird sessions, breaks and lunchtimes

Activities are run during these times including:

  • Chess
  • Board Games
  • Origami
