This paper takes the first-year students of a high school in Sichuan as the research object, and investigates the development status of the English reading character of the first-year students in high school. The results of the study show that: (1) The English reading character is at a middle level, which needs improving. (2) Gender differences will not affect the development of students’ English reading character. (3) There is a correlation between the level of students’ English reading character and English achievement. English reading character has a positive impact on English achievement. This paper analyzes the correlation between English reading character and gender and English achievement, and puts forward corresponding suggestions according to the development situation of students’ English reading character, which is expected to provide assistance for the cultivation of middle school students’ English reading character.
