We create a fun environment for pupils to participate in Book Clubs in their schools. BCiS is a peer-to-peer mentoring programme where Years 10 and 12 run Book Clubs for year 7s.

Through the Book Clubs, pupils learn to

  • read at a higher level
  • foster analytical thinking
  • use evidence to support opinions
  • articulate and share ideas
  • develop emotional intelligence, empathy and creativity
  • interact and relate to peers from different age groups and diverse backgrounds
  • organise and manage their time
  • effectively lead and facilitate group discussion (Book Club leaders)

The year 10s are developing resilience and perseverance.

They have coped well with the responsibility of being prepared for book club and setting a good example to the younger students.

Amy Smith, Librarian

The habits of informed criticism and respectful debate are practised during book club, these are cross curricular life skills. I have observed the accelerated progress in the work of the pupils who participated in English.

Dom Jones, English teacher

The format gets children to reflect on a text, to consider the views of other group members and to develop more objective and analytical thinking in a fun and engaging way.
