The Library is open Monday to Friday 8am until 5pm.

We are a lending library for students and staff, with books, newspapers and IT facilities. The library is staffed at break and lunchtimes, when students are encouraged to use the facilities for study and leisure and before and after school for students who come in early or are staying late. We have computers and tablets with full Internet access.

We want to encourage all students to read as often and as widely as possible. All students are automatically enrolled as library members when they join the school and make regular visits to the library with their tutors to borrow books. We have a wide range of extra-curricular activities which students in Years 7, 8 & 9 especially are encouraged to take part in. There are recommended reading lists available and the Librarian will be happy to support your child’s reading journey if you would like to contact her.

All students are encouraged to develop their research and information handling skills and the Library works closely with the ICT department to promote safe use of the internet.
