About the library

The library is open from 8am to 4pm each day, including in break and lunch times. We run a board games club every morning before school, and quiet study time from 3pm to 4pm.

You can borrow a book for up to 4 weeks at a time, and you can have up to 4 books out at once. After the 4 weeks are up, you can renew your book for longer – just ask a librarian!
Years 7, 8, and 9 have regular library lessons where they can choose library books, take part in class reading and activities, and develop the skills they need to read for pleasure.

ePlatform – Our very own ebook library, with over 1,200 ebooks you can read for free.


Welcome to our new online library system! Here you can view the library catalogue, make reservations, and review books you’ve read – just log in with your usual school email address and password you use to logon to the school PC.
