Close Links with English Department


Each English class from S1-S3 is timetabled to visit the library on a fortnightly basis.  Pupils are taught library and research skills via a library induction course.  This time is also dedicated to Accelerated Readera user-friendly online reading scheme which quizzes pupils' knowledge and understanding of books they have just read.  Pupils are encouraged to explore Accelerated Reader using the following link:




Pupils’ success in this scheme is recognised and highlighted through various displays in the library, including a 100% Readers' Wall and Pupil of the Month wall. This scheme is very successful here at Kyle and we are proud of the accomplishments our pupils have made. Although not timetabled, our S4 pupils also attend the library for reading periods occasionally.  This reinforces the importance of reading for pleasure and fosters a lifelong positive reading habit.
