At Bellerive, we are very clear about the importance of reading. By encouraging students to read both for pleasure and to improve their subject knowledge, we wish to foster a life-long love of reading.  We have recently refurbished our library and a number of reading initiatives are taking place including ‘Drop Everything and Read’ (DEAR) and pupil-led reading groups.

Recommended reading lists can be viewed on our LoveReading4Schools page.  Our student librarians have also created a blog to showcase the books they feel most passionate about:

All books listed are available to borrow from the school library. If you wish to purchase any you can do so though the website too. To view our page please click on the link above and enter the password: BelleriveReads
