WELCOME

A warm welcome to all students and staff at Hodge Hill College as we continue our journey to encourage recreational reading and promote literacy as the basic foundation  required  for achieving academic success.

The school Library is a bustling hub of activity within which the Inclusion Team runs multiple daily interventions and is the home of our major literacy initiative in place at Hodge Hill College. The trained library staff regularly keep track of literary trends and popular book choices amongst students and the stock available to students is replenished annually to reflect the diverse tastes of our students.

For the academic year 2019/20 Hodge Hill College is excited to introduce a brand new literacy initiative that we believe will tackle the crucial issue of raising levels of student literacy, academic attainment, and equipping students with essential life-skills head on. For KS3 we have introduced the Library Resource Catalogue which aims to bring the school library to even the most reluctant of readers. On a monthly basis, students will choose their desired text and from that moment have 1 month to complete the reading of their age-appropriate text and to return a book review form to our school librarians in order to receive a stamp on their Library Loyalty Card. Students that complete the reading and necessary reviews of 20 texts within the academic year are entered into a prize draw to win a Kindle Fire HD.

We strongly urge parents of KS3 pupils to support the school in enhancing student literacy through the regular checking of reading logs which are provided to all KS3 pupils and to encourage a minimum of 20 minutes of reading for pleasure every evening.

The school library is a warm, colourful and welcoming place for students of all ability and we will strive to continue to make it an interactive centre of learning, research and for socialising with an academic focus within our school.
