All students and staff participate in weekly Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) sessions.

As part of Hodgson’s Reading School initiative, a 20-minute DEAR session is run every week. Students must, when the bell sounds, stop in lessons and read a non-fiction article provided by the DEAR team to be read as a group. Students will also be given an opportunity to read for pleasure during their extended form period on a Monday morning.
