World Book Day 2018

At Ark Boulton, we are dedicated to serving the community in order to provide young people with the skills required to succeed in life, whether that be to advance on to higher education, training, or a career of their choice. Literacy has a huge impact on this success and this is why we highly value its' importance at our academy. 

Our students benefit from 'Lead Learning Time', a daily session which allows for collective reading with peers and staff. The programme has been specifically designed and tailored to our students, exposing them to a range of texts, outside of the English curriculum, allowing them to improve their vocabulary, their cultural capital and most importantly, improve their life chances beyond Ark Boulton. 

In order to highlight the enjoyment and 'fun factor' of reading, we celebrate World Book Day every year and get involved in fun filled activities for both staff and students.

This year, we had a special message from The Invisible Man for all Ark Schools!
