Do you like to read? Interested in working with children? Have an hour a week to volunteer? Then join the Reading Club at Grange Primary School!

We’re looking for volunteers to join our weekly term time reading hour with children in Bermondsey, London. You will be paired with one child as a literacy supporter. You will hear them read, support their literacy skills, and help to foster a lifelong long love of reading for pleasure. We welcome student volunteers from all backgrounds and nationalities.

In-person and onsite at Grange Primary School

About Grange Primary School

Grange Primary School is a friendly and diverse school in central London for children aged 4 - 11 years old. Like UCL, it's a global school with 52 different languages spoken in addition to English. The school is passionate about promoting reading for pleasure for the pupils. All volunteers will be given training by the school literacy lead on how to read with children. This is a great opportunity to make a difference and have fun too!
