School Library and Bookshop Information

Our aim is to promote reading for pleasure amongst all students, so that they develop a real enthusiasm and love for books. We have a wide variety of books, ranging from picture books to fiction and non-fiction books for all children to borrow and enjoy.

Infants have a weekly timetabled session with our librarian, Mrs Volioti, while juniors have a session every fortnight with our volunteer librarian, Mrs Towse. During their library sessions, children can borrow or reserve books and explore our library. There is also the opportunity for students to access Junior Librarian from home, to reserve books or to see what books they have on loan.

We have thirteen Year 6 Student Librarians, whose help is invaluable, as they help in the running of the library on a daily basis. They learn new valuable life skills such as respecting books, helping others, organising and keeping our library tidy.

The library bookshop, sells the latest fiction and non-fiction books at a reduced price and generates much needed funds for the library, while our library newsletter contains information about the latest books available, events and competitions taking place in the Library and will be updated on the website on a termly basis.
