HAOC Reading List

Our vision is to foster a culture of reading across the school in which students read ambitious and diverse texts for pleasure, whilst gaining cultural capital. Students will develop the habits that enable them to read with fluency and confidence throughout their academic journey and in later life.

Here at Harris Academy Ockendon, we believe that knowledge is power, and we make it stick. The source of much of this powerful knowledge comes from the world of books and the art of reading. Not only can reading be highly enjoyable if someone finds the right genre to capture the imagination, but the evidence also tells us that the most successful people are all avid readers. Bill Gates still reads a minimum of 50 books per year and former US President Barack Obama described reading as ‘the gateway’ skill that makes all other learning possible. However, trends also tell us that many young people have fallen out of the habit of reading regularly as technology and other entertainment forms take the place of books.

Therefore, we have compiled a reading list for our students to encourage them, indeed even challenge them, to find a book that captures their interest and give reading a go. Please click HERE.

For those who are already avid readers, this list will provide a breadth of stimulating reads that we believe will broaden their horizons and hopefully open them up to a whole new world of diverse fiction. Many of these titles are already in our school library so can be easily borrowed and most will be widely available in local libraries or can be purchased in any good bookstore online or on the high street.

If you would like more information or advice, please email either Mrs Ward: l.ward@harrisockendon.org.uk or Mr Pearce: d.pearce@harrisockendon.org.uk

Happy reading!
