The Library and Get Reading With Sora

Welcome to the library! 

Students are welcome in the library every break, lunchtime and after school for homework club. They will also visit the library with their class, to borrow books and explore everything on offer.   

We have a large fiction collection, including contemporary children’s authors, classic novels, drama, poetry and a growing collection of graphic novels, including Manga. There is also an extensive reference section, arranged in topic areas. Students can use the computers for study and to access a large collection of e-books and audio books. 

Students can borrow books for two weeks and renew after that. There is no need to worry about lateness, there are no fines in our school library.    

We have a great team of student librarians and students from across the school regularly submit brilliant book reviews.   

All students can access ebooks and audio books for free.
