Good Literacy skills are vital if young people are to be successful at school and in the wider local, national and international community. At Bridlington School Literacy is therefore very high profile and students are encouraged to read widely and often. All students in years 7 to 9 follow the Accelerated Reading Scheme. Students in years 10 and 11 are also encouraged to read for pleasure, as well as reading to support their GCSE courses.
In addition all students study GCSE English Literature. We develop Literacy skills both within English lessons and also within all subject areas. We also have a comprehensive range of intervention strategies to support students who experience difficulties with Literacy.

Just like Literacy skills, good Numeracy skills are essential to success in school and in later life. As a result, Numeracy is equally as high profile as Literacy at Bridlington School. We develop Numeracy skills both within Maths lessons and also within subject areas like Geography, Design Technology and Science. We have a comprehensive range of intervention strategies to support students who experience difficulties with Numeracy.
