What can you find in our Library?

We have a huge selection of great fiction reading books, shelved alphabetically by the author’s surname and by Accelerated Reader levels.

Non-fiction books are shelved using the Dewy classification system so please ask the librarian if you need help finding a book.

The Daily Echo is supplied every day and we have an excellent Careers Information section that can be used to find out about life after school.

The Library is a quiet place to study and we welcome all students in to work in their free time.

Want to borrow a book?

All students are allowed to borrow 3 books and must be checked out before leaving the library. Feel free to keep these books for up to 3 weeks when you may either return the book or renew it for a further 3 weeks.

Online Reading

With physical newspapers and magazines currently unavailable, many can be read online via the Digital Library. Our Digital Library also includes e-books and e-audiobooks as well as many other useful resources.

Also, why not visit your local library? You can get a membership card for Southampton City Libraries online. It’s free and open to all. You can also sign up at any branch by presenting proof of your name and current address.

Need somewhere to go at break and lunch?

We are lucky to have such a large space and so continue to offer a space to play board games, socialise, read and relax between lessons.

Need a place to do your homework? Come along to our Homework Club every day from 2.45 -3.45pm!

Within the library we have 15 networked computers connected to a laser printer. Students are welcome to use these computers to complete their homework and print work needed for their studies. Snacks are provided if you get hungry or thirsty whilst you you complete your studies and to keep your brain working.

Read2

Read2 takes place in the library every Tuesday and Thursday during tutor times where year 9 pupils encourage year 7 pupils to read with them. Year 9 pupils mentor the year 7s to help them gain confidence in their reading and help them select suitable books for their reading ability and interests. We hope that this scheme will begin to help our students improve their reading ages to help them access the texts they are expected to read at GCSE level.

Handwriting Club

Every Tuesday and Thursday during tutor time we run Handwriting sessions. This is for students who feel they would like to improve their writing or who have been highlighted by SENCO as needing additional support.

Missed breakfast or just got to school really early?

Join us for Breakfast Club! Breakfast club runs every morning from 7.45am to 8.30am.

It is free and open to everybody!
