The School has begun its Literacy and Numeracy Campaign for the 2017/18 academic year. A  reading balcony is being created  for students where they can come and go to read quietly. It also has a poetry corner and a "Read Wall" where students are asked to post up comments about their favourite books. Book Drops are being set up throughout the school where students are encouraged to  take a book and replace it with an other. Students are asked to donate their favourite used book to this Book Drop system. There is a Book Club every Thursday at lunchtime in F62. The school will begin its "Drop Everything and Read" Initiative on Monday, October 2nd at 11.50am. All staff and students will stop everything and read for 20 minutes. Students are asked to bring in some suitable reading material. It can be a book, magazine or newspaper. This event will occur on the first Monday of every month be it at a different time.
