Welcome to our Library. 

Are you looking for a quiet space to do  your homework? 

Do you need to research information on a topic you are studying in class? 

Or do you just want to find the perfect book to transport you to another world? 

Our library can be all of these things so come along and see for yourself.

We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books including latest and popular, titles, Carnegie Medal and Bucks Book Award Shortlisted  books, as well as a range of classic books from the 19th, 20th and 21st Centuries.  Come and have a look.  And if you can’t find what you are looking for, speak to our new Librarian, Mrs Shah.  She is currently updating our collection and would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions of the types of books you would like to see.

As well as the books in the library itself, we also have access to thousands of books through the eplatform.  Just click here and a huge selection are available for  you to read on any device you wish to use. 

We also have an extensive selection of magazines and journals.  Are  you a science buff, a budding historian or a sports fanatic?  We have the magazines and journals to interest you.  And if  you are a news junkie, we now have a daily newspaper three times a week to enable you to keep abreast of current affairs  - at home and abroad.

Our library is also an integral part of our English lessons in years 7 and 8.  These classes have a library lesson every week.  In these lessons students are reading, with their teacher, a range of classic and challenging novels.  Students are also free to choose their own books for private reading.  Mrs Shah is always on hand to offer advice and guidance to help them choose the right book.

Private independent reading  is such a vital part of our students’ learning journey and the library is at the heart of this.  Come to our library and you will see just how it can help you in your education.  We are open at break time and lunch time so come along – choose a book, read a magazine or catch up on all the news in the newspaper. If any of this appeals to you, this is the place to be.
