Global Readers!

On Friday 25th January, we will be launching our Global Reading Project, an initiative to encourage our students to read more widely and diversely. 

According to a 2017 DfE study, 32.1% of school children in England were of minority ethnic origins, and in inner city London schools, this percentage can only be expected to be higher.

We have therefore decided to create the Global Reading Project at the Ursuline, recently acquiring in excess of two hundred new books, whose stories are set in countries all over the world, from Iran, Afghanistan and Kenya, to Denmark, Argentina, Jamaica and Japan.  

Our student librarians will work with sixth form students (Global Reading Sixth Form Ambassadors) to promote these books, (as well as books already in the LRC) in a variety of ways:

But why the need for such a project?
