At King Edward VI Aston we aim to provide and model excellent teaching and learning for all pupils, and to nurture and embed a culture of academic excellence .
All school subjects will involve an element of reading, but we know that fostering a deeper engagement with and enthusiasm for reading (both academically and for pleasure) helps students to develop in many ways.
We want our students to be curious, ambitious, inspired and active learners, and reading can be used as one of the tools to unlock these traits.
With all of this in mind, the school has put together a collection of reading lists to inspire and challenge our students. Please encourage your child to do some wider reading (either from this booklet or of their own choosing). A copy is available to download at the bottom of this page.
