The Library houses a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books, as well as a growing collection of journals, magazines, newspapers, audio books, CD-ROMs, videos and DVDs. The Library catalogue is accessible electronically from any networked computer in the school, as well as via the two dedicated search terminals in the Library.
Our open-plan Library, with a separate, enclosed Seminar Room, allows us to cater for class groups doing research, for private reading and study, or for teaching. The library is open to students before school, after school and at lunch time, with primary and secondary students accessing the library on alternate days during lunch time.
Students are able to borrow up to three items (including audio books) at a time, for an initial period of two weeks. Extensions to loans are possible, as are reservations, and students are encouraged to have input into the development of the collection.
In 2012, the Library added Netbook Computers to its list of resources for students to borrow. These can be borrowed on a daily basis and long term if a student’s personal netbook is undergoing warranty repairs.
