Reading in Key Stage 3

22nd June 2017

We take reading really seriously at De Lacy Academy, with all students assessed for their reading age every term.  We understand that students who have a high reading age have a better chance of achieving success in their GCSE exams than those with a lower reading age.  The independent reading that is promoted across the academy has enabled several students to achieve a significant increase in their reading age. 

The English Faculty now has a Year 7 & 8 display on their corridor of all the students who have increased their reading age.

                                                                                        Well done Year 7 & 8!
