Book Clubs in Schools delivers interactive, inclusive and lively book clubs.
We create a pathway for young people to discover the wider world through reading for pleasure and discussion. Our book clubs help pupils develop character, communication, social and leadership skills. These skills will help young people to do well in school and match the needs of employers. Moreover, the book clubs demonstrate how reading for pleasure provides an escape from everyday concerns.
We work in secondary and primary schools. Older secondary school pupils lead the book clubs for Y7 pupils or Y4, 5, 6 in primary school.
