- Geoff Barton
An ability to read competently is of the utmost importance to a student’s success in all aspects of life. Reading develops cultural capital, allows individuals to participate more fully in the world around them, and equips them with the means to act with agency and independence in their own lives.
‘We are a school that reads. We aim to place reading at the core of the culture at TNA.’
