Broadwater School



Broadwater School actively works to develop a love of reading for pleasure in our students.  Dedicated reading time is built into morning and afternoon tutor sessions to offer students the opportunity during the school day to spend time reading a book for pleasure.  Students in years 7 – 10 take part in the morning tutor reading programme.  Students are asked to have a reading book with them at all times so that they can take part in DEAR time (Drop Everything and Read) during their afternoon tutor session. 

The Learning Resource Centre supports the promotion of reading for pleasure and the school’s aim to create avid readers by providing a vibrant and welcoming environment for students, and by ensuring that a wide range of high-quality books are promoted to students and readily available to borrow.

We welcome donations of books from our school community to add to the school library.  Book donations help us to increase the breadth and diversity of books available to students, whilst also supplying us with spare copies of books which can be used to replace those that have become worn through use.
