The Learning Resource Centre supports Accelerated Reader at Rossett by offering over 2000 quizzed books and computers for quizzing. Students who score 100% can enter our prize draw. Please click here for more information on Accelerated Reader.
For students who love reading and taking part in book related activities we offer two school reading groups – read@rossett for Years 7, 8 and 9 and wellread@rossett for Years 10,11 and Sixth Form, which meets regularly throughout the year to chat about books and take part in book related activities.
Rossett is also involved in shadowing the Carnegie Medal awarded for Outstanding Children’s Literature, and we take part in voting for the Stan Lee Excelsior Awards so graphic novel/comic book fans can read and vote on the shortlists. We also regularly welcome poets and authors into the school to discuss their work.
If you are looking for a great book to read suggestions can be found on our Recommended Reads lists or ask in the Learning Resource Centre if you would like help choosing.
