The Accelerated Reading scheme at City Academy motivates students to read and encourages friendly competition both in classes and across the year group. As of September Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 students are taking part. Students take a test at the beginning of term to determine their reading comprehension level, and then choose from a wide selection of suitable books to enjoy. Once they have read the book, they then use an iPad to take a reading comprehension quiz and are allocated points according to the book's difficulty, length and their percentage of correct answers.
