Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader is a powerful online tool that lets you:

  • Test yourself and find out your reading age and level.
  • Choose a book with the ‘AR Finder’ that is at the right level for you (not too easy and not too hard).
  • Take a quiz after you have read the book to see how much you have really understood.

It also will email the results home to your parents so that they know what you are reading and how well you are doing

Once you start using it and get into reading, we hope you will develop a lifelong love of reading.

To help you we have got a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts from Graphic Novels to Ghost stories so there’s something to suit everyone.

For book recommendations, visit our Recommended Reads page.

To access the site from inside school go onto:

  1. Start Button
  2. Departments
  3. Click on English
  4. Accelerated Reader – I am a student
  5. Your username is your first name and surname in lower case (no spaces)
  6. Password is your date of birth e.g. 20112002

Most students can push their reading age up by two years within a year. To do this you need to read for 20 minutes a day. Your English teacher will set you reading as part of your Independent Learning and you will have time during AR lessons and tutor time to read as well.


Get reading and enjoy escaping into another world!
