Our Library Facilities
The recently refurbished School library – pupils at key stage 3 have a dedicated period each week during their English to enjoy reading for pleasure in our school library. Pupils are encouraged to choose from a wide range of fiction and non-fiction material.
Two pupils for each English class are nominated as class librarians to oversee the weekly exchange of books. In addition, library prefects also assist in the day to day running of the school library.
