Literacy to Achieve

When young people develop a love of reading, they are more likely to succeed in life after school. Unfortunately, current reading spaces at Walbottle Campus in the School Library and Sixth Form are no longer fit for purpose. With this in mind, Literacy to Achieve aims to raise £300,000 over the next 18 months to refurbish and expand reading spaces, and provide high quality books, IT facilities and new furnishings for students.
