Summer Reading Extension programme

Extension Programme -  Summer Reading Assignments 2021


  • All pupils must buy and read the books listed for their appropriate level during the summer holidays.
  • Highlight interesting passages and take a few notes on characters, themes and ideas which come to mind as you read. 
  • Try to work through a few of the language exercises each week over the holidays and to reserve enough time each week to get through the novel. You will have a short test on one of the novels at the Rentrée.    
  • Please also order the books that will be used during the upcoming school year by consulting this list >>

General Advice :

To progress in English, pupils should get in the habit of reading regularly : news articles, blogs, short stories, novels, etc.

You might enjoy Vocable, a magazine of newspaper articles from the English language press, such as The Guardian and The New York Times. Each article is accompanied by a full glossary.  It is available through subscribing on-line.

All pupils should have a combined Dictionary & Thesaurus at home.

New pupils may wish to consult the website over the summer to brush up on your grammar, if necessary.


Our very best wishes for an enjoyable summer, 

The Extension Programme Teachers
