The library aims to be at the centre of the school. It is our belief that encouraging a life-long love of reading is paramount to helping our pupils achieve their full potential in life.

The library is run by our school librarian and enthusiastic and knowledgeable pupil librarians. It is very popular with our pupils and is a hive of activity at break time and lunchtime.

The library is open to pupils and staff at break and lunchtime every day of the week and after school until 4.30 pm for Homework Club Monday to Thursday.

Our aims:

  • To promote, encourage and inspire reading for pleasure in a wide range of genres.
  • To teach information literacy so pupils can use the library to its full potential.
  • To support teaching and learning across the curriculum.
  • To provide a positive, nurturing and welcoming learning environment.

Our facilities:

  • Over 4,500 books of fiction and non-fiction
  • Careers Information, College and University Prospectuses
  • 5 computers available for pupils and staff to use
  • iPad use in the library is limited to homework, reading e-books, listening to e-audiobooks or Firefly tasks

Teachers can book the library for lessons.

We have regular author visits and literary events.


We accept donations of fiction books less than 2 years old, and non-fiction books less than 5 years old.

BorrowBox app

Year 7, 8 and 9 have been registered as Lancashire Library users so they can access the BorrowBox app. The app can be found on their iPads but it can also be downloaded onto other digital devices, please find further information on how to do this in the document below. This enables them to read e-books and listen to e-audiobooks. They will be able to borrow up to 6 titles for 14 days, and these can be renewed twice. Please be aware they will have access to the full library catalogue, not just children and young adult titles. Pupils from other year groups can be registered on the app by seeing Mrs Rigg, School Librarian, in the library.
