The Reading Boys Club

Year 12 Sociologists are being encouraged to engage with a wider range of academic reading to support their learning. We are currently running a pilot scheme for 9 Year 12 boys, The Reading Boys Club, with a view to teaching the habit of reading. This is running across 2 study periods a fortnight where students are reading a range of texts from 'Prisoners of Geography' to 'The Tattooist of Auschwitz'. Students will be assessing their reading speeds and reflecting on the benefit of 2 hours away from phones and other distractions. Male staff are also in support, role modelling reading as not just a female hobby. We hope this will provide students with an alternative option to social media and open their minds to the benefit of reading across all of their studies.
