Bug Club deserves gushing praise for its design and innovation. This is a programme destined to lead the market and transform the way we teach reading.
John Dabell, Independent Review on Teach Primary

Bug Club is a key part of our successful reading culture

Case Study

Bug Club books are varied, motivating and have great ‘pick up appeal’ for children.

Children who wouldn’t necessarily be taken to a library, have then got the online library. That’s a great benefit across the board.
Christine Boyle, Headteacher, St Bernadette's Primary School

Bug Club opens doors to a world of reading and enjoyment

Case Study

Children from less wealthy backgrounds had access to a library of books previously inaccessible to them.
