Our school library is well stocked with a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. All students in Y7 have completed a library induction lesson with our librarian to ensure that they understand how to use the library and associated resources effectively. We actively encourage students to check out books regularly, whether this be from the school library or one of the excellent libraries in the city.
