Our Library - Introduction

Our Library is a vibrant and welcoming space for our pupils.

We welcome pupils to use this space to rowse, read, complete work with peers including on our suite of computers and of course to get support on reading, homework and revision.

Pupils can use the space at break or lunch every day and support runs during tutor time, lessons and after school with the support of staff in English and PUpil Support.
