Book Club runs weekly on a Tuesday break time, to which all are welcome. Various competitions and events are celebrated throughout the School year, such as National Poetry Day and World Book Day.

Pupils have access to the Library catalogue, Oliver, from inside and outside school. Oliver is a database of all the available resources, such as:

  • Books

You can use Oliver to help with research for homework. It not only gives links to relevant and appropriate websites, but will also let you know what books you need and if they are currently available in the Library.
