For students who haven’t used a library before, it’s a room full of resources to help and support you to do your schoolwork, enjoy reading and spend some free time. The Library is a quieter space than the rest of the school and there are a few things you need to remember when you’re there:   

  • It’s a calm and relaxing space
  • It’s somewhere you can sit and work
  • You can use the computers
  • It’s a place you can talk quietly with friends
  • You can borrow the books for up to 2 weeks at a time.
  • It’s a place where you can read silently.

We have computers for you to use, books for you to read, comics to laugh at. There are useful websites to help you with your homework as well as books for you to look things up.

And there are loads of different kinds of books that you can read in your spare time and take home.

Most of all it’s a place to help you do your work and enjoy your free time at school.
