The Library


The Library is a popular place to be within the school. With over 3,000 books, a selection of magazines, First News newspapers and laptops, we have something to offer students of all year groups.

All students are introduced to the Library. Books can be borrowed for two weeks at a time and can be renewed before school, breaks and afterschool at the Library reception desk. All students are encouraged to make book suggestions / orders so we can stock a quality Library were students engage.

Daily Homework Club offers a place for your child to work in a supportive environment, this club is  under the guidance of a member of staff.

In addition, there are clubs, programs and competitions that students can take advantage of in the Library. These include our LRC committee Book club, where students learn all there is to know about books; Film Club; Chess Club; author visits both in person and via Skype and many more.

Accelerated Reader

We use Accelerated Reader (AR) which is a reading management and monitoring programme that aims to foster independent reading. The internet-based software assesses reading age, and suggests books that match pupils' needs and interests. Pupils take computerised quizzes on the books and earn AR points as they progress, which also means prizes.

Library Lessons

All students are welcome to apply to be a Student Library Assistant. This is a fun and educational position that teaches teamwork, organisation and responsibility. Our Student Library Assistants play a vital role within the school Library.
