Over 3000 fiction and about 7000 non-fiction titles are stocked, most of which may be borrowed by staff and pupils. Pupils may borrow up to 4 books at once in addition to their textbooks. A selection of magazines and newspapers is available to read in the library.
There are 12 computers which may be booked for lessons or used at free times by pupils. An interactive whiteboard is available for teaching.
The library is well-used both during lesson time for research and computer-based lessons, and in free time for homework, research and reading.
Tuesday break Ms Beckett runs Eureka, a creative thinking club where pupils solve puzzles and are encouraged to think in new ways.
Pupil librarians are encouraged and assist with the smooth running of the library at breaks and lunchtime. Senior library assistants supervise to ensure that the library remains a pleasant environment for all pupils to work peacefully.
