Inside the Library



The Library has 2 Librarians – Mrs Mahon and Mrs Davies. There are also 4 pupils library assistants, who help with the day to day running of the library.
Not only are there books in the library, but there are computers, magazines, newspapers and comics.
There are lots of activities going on in the library:

  • Library lessons   An introduction to the library for year 7’s, from September

  • Get caught reading   a reading initiative across the school for staff pupils alike.

  • Top Ten Reads   pupils are canvassed to find out which 10 books are the most popular at the time.

  • Book of the Week   chosen by pupils, with a different book each week.

  • Occasionally In the library there are visits by popular authors. The most recent one was Alan Gibbions, and was a great success.

  • Every year there is “The Big Read” aimed at encouraging the children to read during the year. The library promotes one popular new novel. The last one was “millions” by Frank Cottrell Boyce, which the children really enjoyed.

  • A new chess activity will be launched in the very near future, which will be available at break times

  • Situated in one corner of the library is the careers section, displaying relevant information for older pupils, and also a “Health Information Point” where leaflets are available for pupils to take
