Both provide books and resources supporting the curriculum and Reading for Pleasure and have study spaces, computers and printing facilities.
The main Library is open from 8.00 every day, students have open access at break, lunchtimes and after School, usually until 4.00pm.
Students will use the Library regularly throughout their time here. The Library plays a key role in supporting our Accelerated Reader programme, providing access to a wide range of fiction and hosting reading classes and support sessions. We also host small groups of students, for instance doing group work or attending workshops, and organise author events and book fairs. We buy stock throughout the year, ensuring students always have access to the latest titles, and encourage students to suggest stock for the Library.
Students have access to Reading Cloud, where they can remotely check stock, get reading recommendations and see author videos. They can also access their borrower record, submit book reviews and send in stock requests.
For Sixth Form we understand that students need their own space in order to study effectively. Ayesha’s Library is a dedicated area that is used throughout the day by Sixth Form students only. It is designed for individual silent study and provides a calm environment where students can read, complete work, research or prepare assignments.
