Reading Ahead back for 2021!

The Library is pleased to announce the return of Reading Ahead for 2021!

If you want to improve your reading skills or just want to get back into reading then Reading Ahead is for you! Reading Ahead is a national reading challenge which invites you to read six things. When you finish each read, submit your thoughts and give it a score. It’s as easy as that!

Reading is a great way of challenging yourself and can improve literacy skills, teach you new things, support your wellbeing and build confidence. Once you’ve completed six reads, you’ve finished and you’ll receive a certificate and a prize!

Pop in to the Library to collect your paper diary and browse our huge collection of fiction while you’re here!

Alternatively, you can submit your reading online via the Library website. Please click to find out more and take a look at some brilliant online reading suggestions as well as find the online submission form to start your reading journey today!

Northampton College is noted for its success in Reading Ahead, having won Reading Agency awards for nine years!
