Accelerated Reader

Welcome to our Accelerated Reader page.


You can access St. Cuthbert’s Accelerated Reader site at


You can also use to find books.


Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer – passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and ongoing reading practice.


Our Year 7 students will be introduced to Accelerated Reader this term. They will follow the programme throughout their time at St Cuthbert’s allowing them to improve their reading and comprehension skills which will, in turn, provide them with the literacy skills to reach their potential across the curriculum.
