School Library

You can't hope to leave school knowing everything about everything, but you can leave knowing where to find out.

 

Every Student automatically becomes a member of the library. You do not need a library card as the library's computer has your details.

 

The library has approximately 6,000 books. Non-fiction books are arranged by the Dewey decimal classification system. Fiction is arranged in alphabetical order by the author's surname.

 

There is a careers club / drop in session held in the library on alternate Wednesdays, run by our careers advisor. Please see the library notice board for a list of dates.

Borrowing Books

Two books may be borrowed at any one time for two weeks. Books can be renewed if they are not overdue or reserved by another student.

 

Always return your books to the library counter. We don't charge fines if books are overdue, but please return them on time as other students may be waiting for them.

Online Library Catalogue

The library catalogue is available online from any computer is the school, it is also available for smart phones and tablets through an App.

The students can view book titles in the library as well as access approved websites. Also they can check their own borrowing records and write book reviews for other students to read.

Accelerated Reader

Our Year 7 students are following the Accelerated Reader programme. After every book they read they are completing a quiz for individual and form prizes. Their individual book level has been decided using a STAR reading test completed in September, this test will be retaken in December.

 

Within Accelerated Reader there is a feature called Renaissance Home Connect, which you and your child can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection which allows us to share information on your child’s progress.
