Star Reading Success Stories
St Botolphs CE Academy, Wakefield
Over the last three years, our reading scores at the end of Ks1 and Ks2 have improved, but more than that, the confidence and fluency in our children's reading have advanced. Although this cannot be measured, this is something that we see daily. When a child is excited and eager to get a new book from the library, it shows that the ambition I had at the start of this journey has been achieved, and children have fostered that essential love of reading.

St Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic School, Birmingham
In 2013 St Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic School, part of the Lumen Christi Multi-Academy Trust, invested in Accelerated Reader (AR) and Star Reading (SR) to promote a love and motivation for reading amongst their students.
Since then, the school have gone on to see a year-on-year improvement in their Progress 8 score. Most notably, the Progress 8 score for their disadvantaged pupils has increased substantially over the last two years. In 2019, according to the DfE's latest published data, the school performed within the top 29% of all secondary schools in Birmingham based on Progress 8 Score.
