About Reading Schools

Reading Schools is an accreditation programme for schools that are committed to building a reading culture for their learners and communities. Research proves that reading for pleasure is central in supporting equity and wellbeing, positively impacting learners' attainment across the curriculum, critical thinking, creativity, empathy and resilience.

Reading Schools is currently only open to selected local authorities. To check if your school is eligible, please visit our sign up page, where you can also add your details to the waitlist if not eligible. We will contact you when registration opens for your school.
