Both primary and secondary libraries are inspiring environments designed to promote a love for reading amongst our students. As well as timetabled library sessions, both libraries are popular places for students to spend their free time. Students have access to a wide range of digital and printed resources, as well as up-to-date media publications and non-fiction texts that support the curriculum at all levels of their learning. The latest fiction titles from around the world are also available for students’ reading pleasure. We house an adult reading section in our secondary library and always welcome adults to come and explore the reading opportunities on offer to them too!
Both libraries are staffed by full-time specialist librarians and are supported by student library monitors who help to promote a love for literature and assist in making sure that both libraries are organised, attractive and have accessible and varied materials. We are pleased to offer an online catalogue and eBook database as part of our ‘Destiny’ in-house software allowing opportunities to progress English language skills, access E readers and run competitions within year groups and across the whole school.
Not only are the libraries excellent areas to read and learn, they are also excellent study spaces equipped with the technology needed to ensure students foster their love for learning.
