We are really thrilled to be able to announce the launch of our new school library, which will be open to pupils next half term.
Located in the heart of our school building, our new glass bubble is a heavenly haven for book lovers and offers pupils some solitude during busy school days. Stocked with a whole world of exciting stories, pupils can browse our A-Z of fiction and pick out their favourites. We have a plethora of authors, from David Walliams to J.K Rowling or, if pupils prefer the classics, Austen and Dickens. If that's not enough, there's a selection of smaller reads that will take mere minutes to get through.
Our shelves are stacked with an array of poetry, plays and short stories, sections on self-help and character.
For pupils who prefer non-fiction, there's a huge variety of non-fiction helpfully sorted into subjects to support pupils with learning and revision. The fun isn't restricted to our shelves, we have a set of Kindles which offer subscriptions to services including Audible and Kindle Unlimited so there's an even wider world of books at the finger-tips of pupils! If pupils can't find their favourites, they are welcome to speak to their English teacher, who can arrange for books to be ordered for them to rent and read.
Our new self-check scanner makes it really simple for pupils to check books out and all they need to do is pop them on the trolley when they wish to return them.
We've made it easier than ever to engage with reading and we can't wait to see pupils enjoying, and reaping the benefits of our new provision!
