The Kingston Academy is participating in Kingston Schools’ Big Read initiative.  All prospective pupils currently in Year 6 and all staff will be given a copy of the Big Read chosen title.  The aim is to create a strong sense of community through shared reading before pupils arrive, to help them feel welcome and to settle in quickly once they arrive in school.

With the Kingston Big Read, it is also an opportunity to create links with other Kingston schools and take part in Kingston-wide enrichment opportunities.

After a rigorous selection process, we have selected The Boy Who Hit Play by Chloe Daykin.
