13 June 2019
It is well known that young people who choose to read for pleasure regularly are more likely to succeed in all areas of life.
As a school we want to promote and encourage the benefits of reading for all of our students, helping them to be happy, curious and creative thinkers.
on Friday 28 June at 2pm, Chorlton High School will be joining in the Manchester citywide DEAR (Drop Everything and Read). Schools, businesses and community groups from all over Manchester will be taking part by picking up a book and reading.
How can you help?
There will be books available in classrooms on that day. However, please encourage your children to have a book in school on Friday 28 June for the citywide read. Students can come into the library to choose a book, or can bring in a book from home.
Chorlton High School Summer Reading Challenge.
We will also be launching the start of the first ever Chorlton High School Summer Reading Challenge. This is the culmination of our CHS Year of Reading. Students will be challenged to read six books during July and throughout the summer holidays with a prize draw in September for those who have completed the challenge.
Not sure what books to choose?
Reading lists of appropriate books for the following Year groups are available by using the links below:

Ms Hockey and Ms Rodgers, our fantastic CHS Librarians can also advise on suitable books for all of our students.
Many thanks in advance for your support.
