Free stories for kids of all ages. Audible stories is a free website where young people can listen to hundreds of Audible audio titles across six different languages - English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Japanese - for free, so they can keep learning & dreaming.

Every child in school has been gifted a free reading book.  Year 7 have ‘The Goldfish Boy’ by Lisa Thompson, and Year 8 have ‘The Giver’ by Lois Lowry.

We have chosen to provide these books for our students to support them to continue to develop their reading skills outside of school, to provide a shared experience that we may be able to connect with over our digital learning platforms, and to provide some escapism from the world around them.

Please take the time to read these novels with your child where you are able to, and if you race through them please consider ordering from the recommended lists below!
