School Library - 'The Next Chapter'
When can I use the Library?
Opening times will be Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.00pm, open all day including break and lunch.
Sixth Formers are free to use the library for quiet reading. If a class has been booked in, you will not be able to study here during that time.
What does the Library have to offer me?
The Library is a service, not just a place to be. You can use the Library to read, browse, quietly discuss books, read newspapers, or look at careers information.
