Our school library is a fantastic resource for students. It supports and encourages teaching and learning within the school, and actively promotes reading for pleasure. It also provides a centralised facility for research and private study.
Every student in Year 7 and 8 has a regular reading lesson in the library as part of their English curriculum, during which they follow a Reading Passport (covering fiction, non-fiction, plays, poetry, newspapers, magazines and website evaluation). Other subject classes are booked into the library for project and research purposes.
In addition to timetabled lessons, students are welcome to use the library facilities before school, at lunchtime and after school. During social times the pupils may use the Library to retrieve information, to do homework, use computers, to read or just browse the shelves.
All Year 7 students follow a library induction programme during the first weeks of the Autumn term which will include information skills and reading promotion.
The Library is open each day from:
Monday 8.20am - 4.20pm
Tuesday 8.20am - 4.20pm
Wednesday 8.20am - 3.50pm
Thursday 8.20am - 4.20pm

Occaisionally the library may be closed after school for other events.
