Resources

The school library is situated on the first floor next to Guidance. We have a collection of over 8,000 books. Which includes study guides, graphic novels and quick reads. We aim to provide a stimulating learning environment, which encourages everyone to develop their own information literacy skills and a love of reading, whether this be paper, kindle or internet based.
