HGA Launches its own Literary Canon
Harris Garrard Academy has launched its own 'Literary Canon' to promote a love of reading canonical texts. There are 100 incredible books on the Literary Canon list: 50 for Key Stages 4 and 5, and 50 for Key Stage 3.
Every student has a reading journal to start working their way through the canon and reading the books, and we give out prizes in awards assembly for those that have read the most books on the canon. Teachers are also read books on the canon to discuss with students and review them for a 'Canon book of the week'.
