Excellence in the Heart of the Community
Wade Deacon Trust
The school’s large and vibrant library is valued and used by the whole school community; from Year 7 to Year 11, teaching staff and support staff. Throughout the school day, and after lessons have finished pupils and staff can be found making the most of the excellent study and research facilities available as well as taking the opportunity to sit and read the latest fiction.
The library takes pride of place in the centre of the school and is accessed from both the front and back corridors. It has recently been refurbished and is a light and airy space with doors which open onto the quad gardens.
The library is managed by a full time librarian, Mrs Heritage, and supported by a team of pupil Library Leaders who help out at break, lunch and after school. We also have a Learning Assistant who manages the breakfast study sessions between 8.00am and morning registration.
The school library enjoys a range of uses including:
The library is an important resource for promoting Teaching & Learning, inclusion and supporting the achievement of all pupils. The library is open before school 7.45am – 8.45am for students Monday to Friday supported by a TA. It is open throughout the day and is busiest at break and lunchtimes. There is also an independent learning club which runs after school Monday to Friday from 2.45pm until 4.00pm with the Librarian on hand to help students.
