Welcome to the Fullbrook page on Reading for Pleasure! At Fullbrook, we are passionate about reading because we know how important it is. Research proves that reading impacts performance in every subject:


  • Students who read will have a 9.9% advantage in Maths by age 16
  • In Science, researchers found that the strongest factor affecting pupils’ science scores is reading comprehension
  • Reading improves vocabulary by 26% regardless of background
  • Reading also develops confidence, improves self-esteem and increases empathy.

There really are no disadvantages to reading!
