Library

Our Library is a welcoming environment in which to read, research and complete homework.

We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books including latest and popular titles, Carnegie Medal and Bucks Book Awards shortlisted books and well-known classic and modern authors. 

Students can search and reserve books available in our library through our online catalogue.

We are always looking to update and expand our selection of books and have set up an Amazon Wish List of requested titles.  If you own and would like to donate any of the titles on our wish list, or if you would like to purchase a new or gently used book for the library, all donations will be gratefully received.

We also have access to thousands of eBooks through ePlatform, which can be accessed through our personalised website, or via the app, which is available through the Apple App Store, Google Play or Microsoft Apps.

We have the Reading Well for Young People books available in the Library, which is a range of expert endorsed fiction, non-fiction and self-help books supporting young people’s mental health, with topics including ASD, anxiety, stress, OCD, bullying, body image and more.

The Library supports the English department with the inspirational Accelerated Reader Scheme in which the student’s progress is tracked and throughout the year there are awards for effort and improvement.  Year 7 and 8 students will have weekly Library lessons to support their reading.

The Library celebrates World Book Day in March and past events have included author visits, book quizzes and competitions.  The Library also regularly highlights key events such as Black History Month, Remembrance Day and National Poetry Day through book displays.

The library is open at Break and Lunchtime to all students.
