Suggested Reading

At Harrow Way, we acknowledge the large body of research which indicates a correlation between reading and academic success and between reading and well-being and we encourage all our students to be readers. To this end, our Learning Resource Centre operates a library facility with thousands of fiction and non-fiction books supporting reading for pleasure and reading for purpose. Some audio fiction titles are available. There are also a wide variety of magazines.

We operate an E-book platform though Hampshire County Council and this now includes audio books too. Our Reading Cloud platform allows students to access the library catalogue, read and write book reviews, find out what new titles are available and more. Both can be accessed via the VLE. All of these are free to use. However, lost items will need to be replaced by the borrower. In addition, we run a student book group called NatterReads who meet informally most weeks over lunch to share what they are reading.

Our Learning Resource Centre Manager is able to provide recommended reading book lists for students who are reluctant or struggling readers as well as recommended book review and search websites.
