Our Library

Our school library is a friendly place, managed by our Reading Specialist Mrs. Manning and assisted by pupil librarians. We hope our pupils will enjoy reading the wide range of books, catching up on homework and sharing quiet time with their friends. There are a variety of fiction and non-fiction books to borrow and there are PCs available for pupils' use for homework tasks.

Fiction books are shelved in popular genre sections, allowing pupils to independently find books they will enjoy – funny, fairy tale, fantasy, mystery, scary, adventure or animal adventure. There are graphic novels, manga and young adult (for KS3 pupils) to choose from too.

Along with a small selection of non-fiction, pupils will also find short stories, true stories and quick reads.

Borrowing books from the Library

Books are loaned to pupils for up to two weeks, and recorded on the library management system, with the return date stamped in the front of the book. If pupils are enjoying their book and need longer than two weeks, they can renew their current book for longer. If the book becomes overdue, the pupil will be sent a reminder via their form tutor to return the book to the library. If after 3 reminders, they have still not returned the book, then a letter will be sent home to parents/carers asking for the book to be replaced.
