Bromley 100

“Read at every wait; read at all hours; read within  leisure; read in times of labour; read as one goes in; read as one goest out. The task of the educated mind is simply put: read to lead.”   Marcus Tullius Cicero 

We are proud to announce the launch of ‘The Bromley 100’. The Bromley 100 comprises of 100 books that the staff, students and parents believed to be classic books that students should aim to read during their time at the Academy. Students taking up the challenge will gain hugely from the experience, whether it is reading for pure pleasure or to broaden their knowledge and literary horizons.  We would also encourage parents and carers to take up the challenge and read a selection or all of the books and then discuss them with their daughters (or son's in Sixth Form). The staff at the academy will also be embarking on this literary journey and discussing their views on the books with your daughters.

The library has copies of all the books, so that students can continue on with the literary experience. We would welcome any additional copies that you may wish to contribute to the library or a donation so that the library may purchase additional copies.

A copy of the Bromley 100 list can be found below. Please let us know via the info@harrisbromley.org.uk account if there is any way you would like to support with the Bromley 100, whether you would like to share your views on a book on the list or donate a book to the library.

Donations can be made via our Parent Pay system by selecting ‘Bromley 100’. If you do not currently have parent pay login details please contact the finance department to organise. If you are donating a physical copy of the book please ask your daughter to hand it to reception. I would also like to say a big thank you to all parents who have already generously donated to the Bromley 100 on behalf of the students and staff of Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley.

Thank you for your continued support.
