The English curriculum textbooks are from the Oxford Reading tree
offered by Oxford University Press. This reading scheme is used in over 80% of British schools. This programme supports emergent literacy, leading to independent reading, and then develops into reading for pleasure. The scheme has hard copies of the books plus online e-books. Watch for our dedicated Reading Tree space in our library. The London Academy library is both physical and virtual. A true 21st Century resource accessible to pupils, parents, and faculty.
The library at London Academy is situated at the centre of the school in a wonderfully large and airy space full of the potential to make this a truly 21st Century library.
The Library will start this school year with 2,000 new library books in English, French and Arabic, consisting of a mixture of non-fiction for all ages and nonfiction aligned to the curriculum and pupils’ interests. In addition it is enhanced by our online reading programme. This is an online reading programme helping to teach younger children to read and helping the older pupils develop their grammar and vocabulary skills.
