The college library is a
well stocked, expertly run, working library, providing excellent library and
study accommodation. Comprising items covering the whole subject range, the
system is computerised so that any item can be traced immediately.
There is one full time
Librarian and this ensures the students can avail of centralised resources from
9.00am-4.30pm each day.
The needs of the complete
school are met in the library from Year 8 right up to Year 14, students and
Much planning and work
makes it a well run, comfortable environment to enable the pupils to make the
best use of it as both a library and as an area of study for the Upper School.
From Year 8 pupils enjoy
library instruction which provides them with a good background for getting the
most out of their library. We hope these skills will stand them in good stead
as they approach either further education or their chosen careers and give them
the confidence to go out and be able to search and find information easily.
We are also in a very
fortunate position to have a specialised Junior Library which caters for Years
8-10, where all stock is chosen to suit younger readers. We work closely with
the junior readers and are always open to ideas for improvement.
Throughout the day the
students have access to nineteen computers, all with internet facility. Each of
the computers is linked to both a colour and a b&w printing facilities.
An array of services is
offered including b&w photocopying, colour photocopying, scanning, stationary
supplies etc. A good range of magazines supplement our extensive book stock as
does our large collection of DVD’s.
Our ethos is to provide an
excellent first rate library, continually updating and improving our service
for the whole school.
