The Library is the hub of the school – a vibrant, well used area. It has 16 computers and a colour printer. There is also a Careers area in the library to help pupils make important decisions in regards to their future careers.

Break and lunch-times are very popular for all pupils for finding that exciting read, information for homework or leisure activities. There are numerous opportunities for pupils to help out in the day to day running of the library, to participate in lots of competitions and attend ‘book-talking’ events and author visits. The aim is to make the library an enjoyable learning area and to encourage all pupils to love reading by having a book in their bag at all times. There are over 4,000 books to choose from and so we are able to supply pupils with a fantastic range of exciting books, to suit all interests and reading abilities. Pupils are encouraged to help choose library books to loan from Creative Learning Services or books to buy for the library. Each pupil can borrow 3 books for up to 3 weeks. For more information regarding books stocked in the library and reviews pupils are able to double-click on eclipse.net and login with their library username and password. If pupils don’t have this information please ask Mrs Wait (Library Manager).
