The School Library
The School Library is run by Librarian Miss Rice and is open every lunchtime and after school till 4.00pm.
The Library is an accessible, multimedia, learning resource centre and we aim to provide a welcoming and inclusive learning environment where reading for pleasure and a positive attitude to learning is actively promoted and encouraged. See our ‘Guide to Borrowing’ here.
There are two main areas to the Library: one for reading and independent study, with a huge variety of fiction and non-fiction for everyone from Year 7 to Year 11 and staff. There is comfortable seating for quiet reading, fun interactive displays and desks for studying with revision resources available to support. The other area is dedicated to computer workstations where students can research online, revise and complete their homework.
We regularly run quizzes, contests and competitions to encourage students to push their reading boundaries and these are shared by Miss Rice via the Library Google Classrooms, in tutor time and via social media. Students can take part in the “Starbooks” Loyalty card scheme whereby they collect stamps for books read and reviewed which can then earn house points. There is also the opportunity to become involved with helping run the Library by becoming a Student Librarian.
