Accelerated Reader Success Stories
Holly Lodge Foundation High School College of Science, West Midlands
Many students have reading levels well below the national average when they join Holly Lodge. Since Accelerated Reader has been implemented, attitudes towards reading have been transformed and students are rapidly improving their reading skills. Ofsted inspectors noted the impact of AR in their latest inspection.
Perryfields High School Maths and Computing College, West Midlands
The LRC has been brought back to the forefront of student life at Perryfields. Students who traditionally avoided books are now discussing what they are reading with staff and other students.
Clacton County High School, Essex
Students tend to join Clacton County High School with reading levels below where they should be. After implementing Accelerated Reader, the number of books being borrowed from the library increased fourfold and students are reading for pleasure.
Holy Family Primary School, County Derry
Inspectors were impressed with the "rich literacy environment" at Holy Family Primary School - students are engaged with reading, and as a result almost all students at the end of Key Stage 2 have reading ages at or above their chronological ages.
Niddrie Mill Primary School, Edinburgh
Staff at Niddrie Mill wanted to establish a strong culture of reading throughout the school. Accelerated Reader gave them the support they needed to get students reading for pleasure and to monitor their progress in reading skills.
