Sora (Our digital library)


As part of our continued drive towards creating a reading for pleasure culture at St Edmunds, we have invested in an e-book/audiobook app called SORA. SORA works like a digital library where your child can borrow up to 6 books at a time, put themselves on a waitlist for popular books and quite simply, immerse themselves in the world of books! Reading for 20 minutes a day can have a transformative impact on your child’s academic ability alongside boosting their well-being.


How does Sora Work?


Through Sora, your child now has free access to over 2,500 books and can be seen as an extension to our physical library. The app can be downloaded on as many different devices as they like or accessed through a web browser. Your child will be able to check out titles, anytime anyplace and have the opportunity to listen to e-books to and from school. 


There are a number of accessibility options available including a dyslexia friendly font, ‘dark contrast’ and text to speech functionality that means all children can have an enjoyable reading experience.


Your child will be shown how to login at school, but in the event they are absent that day or you would like to support at home, you will find a quick login guide below.


Logging in


  1. Download ‘Sora’ the app/play store or vist

  2. Select ‘I have a set up code’ and type in: UKSECONDARY

  3. Scroll down to find the school’s name

  4. Login using the normal school email and password


Connecting with the local Library


In addition, if your child is a member of a Kent Library, they can easily connect their SORA account to Kent County Council and have an even greater access to a number of books.
