The library is a well-stocked resource for both students and staff. We encourage you to make use of our excellent facilities. 

There is a wide range of stock including non-fiction, fiction and reference books. We also have an Archive dating back to the 1920s.

This will give you access to each monthly issue as well as to hundreds of articles in the archives that could support your wider reading for any of the humanities subjects.

There are six networked desktop computers, which students can use before school and during both breaks. During busy periods of the year these may need to be booked in advance through Mrs Williams.

The Library also offers a well-stocked Stationery Shop that can be accessed before school and during break and lunch times.
