Watch how Babington Community College engage a diverse range of students to read using RM Books.

The school has many literacy challenges including supporting EAL and SEN students, as well as inspiring reluctant and struggling readers. A number of their students had issues with reading and it hadn't been something that was enjoyable earlier on in their life. Therefore they looked towards RM Books to give their students a pleasurable reading experience that was necessary to raise aspirations.

You've got all of the right books for the right reading age that you are.

They have the factility to take reading out of school and make use of mobile devices for reading when they are at home. The school has benefitted greatly from the use of RM Books and they feel that it has helped them to bring reading into the 21st Century.
