Accelerated Reader Programme



The Academy uses the Accelerated Reader Programme to monitor and manage independent reading practice. Using this programme, we aim to encourage a lifelong love of reading and raise literacy standards. 


Students can identify books which are enjoyable and at a level which are difficult enough to keep them challenged, but not so difficult they cause frustration. When they have finished reading the book, they can take an accelerated reader quiz to check their understanding.


Our range of incentives and rewards can offer powerful motivation.


Bradley is our first Brompton Academy Word Millionaire, having read more than one million words since September. He has received two cinema tickets.




Year 7 students will receive 'Brag Tags' to help them record and measure their progress and to show Parents and Carers how well their reading is developing!
