School Library

Our school library is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for borrowing books or to spend time reading, drawing with friends and recommending books to each other. It is well-stocked with all the best fiction, from classics to new releases, as well as some up-to- date non-fiction and graphic novels, too. We have school kindles available to borrow, which are a great way to dip into new books – sign up on the waiting list if you’re interested!
