Library

The library is very much at the heart of the school. It’s vibrant and dynamic with a steady stream of students visiting throughout the day.

The primary role of the library is to support independent learning. It is a place for students to read, study and collaborate on homework. We also welcome students wanting to engage in more peaceful activities away from the hustle and bustle of break and lunch times. The library is zoned to accommodate these different activities. The ever popular ‘Book Nooks’ give students a quiet corner for reading or reflection and our dedicated Wellbeing Area is there to support anyone who may need to use it.

We have a wide range of resources on offer to challenge, inspire and focus our students’ learning. There are PCs and iPads available for study and research which are bookable a day in advance. We also have everything you need to put together your homework projects including glue, scissors, paper and a guillotine! During the day, as well as regular lessons, the library provides a silent study space for our sixth form students.

The display areas showcase topical themes and books throughout the year as well as providing a platform for student driven projects and initiatives. We also have a range of lighter activities available such as origami and colouring.

Our librarian Mrs Craig, and her assistants Mrs O’Brien and Ms Gregory, are always on hand to support, advise and help students in whatever way they can. They run library clubs such as ‘Book Babble’, our informal book review group. They also supervise our student librarian team and run various literacy themed events and reading challenges throughout the year.

This year is also a time of big changes in the library as our exciting refurbishment is about to start!
