As a school, Wellingborough places academic achievement at the heart of our curriculum, creating a challenging education which promotes self-awareness, active participation and responsibility. The School values altruism and community, as is reflected in our commitment to charity and to building links with the world outside of the school gates. Our aim is to create an environment in which pupils can develop to their full potential and thrive as individuals. The School creates a happy, supportive atmosphere, derived from people knowing each other well and a lack of anonymity. My fondest memories are of my years at Wellingborough School. I made my closest friends there and kept in touch with them throughout university and into the world of work.

Every day at School is exciting and fun. We learn so many new things and the teachers make the lessons interesting, even when what we are studying is hard work.

Twenty-six percent of children who were read to three or four times in the last week by a family member recognized all letters of the alphabet.

This is compared to 14 percent of children who were read to less frequently. Children in families with incomes below the poverty line are less likely to be read to aloud everyday than are children in families with incomes at or above poverty. The more types of reading materials there are in the home, the higher students are in reading proficiency, according to the Educational Testing Service. Children who read frequently develop stronger reading skills. According to the National Education Association, having kids read a lot is one of the crucial components of becoming a good reader. Young readers need to become practiced at recognizing letters and sounds. The only way to get good at it is to practice.

Department of Education5 found that, generally, the more students read for fun on their own time, the higher their reading scores. Between 1984 and 1996, however, the percentage of 12th grade students reporting that they “never” or “hardly ever” read for fun increased from 9 percent to 16 percent. A poll of middle and high school students commissioned by the National Education Association6 found that 56 percent of young people say they read more than 10 books a year, with middle school students reading the most. Some 70 percent of middle school students read more than 10 books a year, compared with only 49 percent of high school students. 46 points below the national average.

Where involvement is high, classrooms score 28 points above the national average – a gap of 74 points. The National Assessment of Educational Progress8 tested children nationwide for reading skills. Proficient 31 percent, and Advanced 7 percent. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, 2000. 6Poll commissioned for the National Education Association by Peter D.
