Our library is an attractive, welcoming environment with a warm, friendly atmosphere and is always a hive of activity.

We aim to:

  • Support students in becoming independent thinkers and learners
  • Encourage students to read for pleasure and become lifelong readers
  • Support teaching and learning through the provision of good, up to date resources

Opening Hours  

Monday – Thursday:  8.00am - 4.30pmFriday: 8.00am - 4.15pm


The library has almost 7,000 resources including information books, an extensive range of fiction, DVDs, newspapers, audio books, magazines, networked computers, e-resources and a large collection of games and jigsaws.

Various events take place throughout the year including author visits, Hampshire Book Award participation, quizzes, competitions and much more.

Recommended Reading Lists

As well as the regular reading lessons during English classes throughout key stage 3, there will be opportunities to read during some tutor time sessions. Therefore it is an expectation that every student has a reading book with them at all times during the school day.

Obviously we have a very wide range of books available to borrow in the library, so we have produced reading lists for each year group to provide guidance and book ideas for those who need inspiration. All of these books are appropriate in content and subject matter for the relevant age range. We also have lists providing book ideas for various genres or subject matters to complement curriculum subjects such as history or geography so feel free to request these if you or your child would like to have a browse.

These are not exhaustive lists by any means and students are free to select other appropriate book titles. Additionally, although these lists are fiction based, it is perfectly acceptable for students to select non-fiction titles. The library will be open between 3.00-4.30pm (4.15pm on a Friday) each day should parents wish to seek advice and guidance from the school librarians.

It is an expectation on their return to school in September that every student has their reading book with them at all times during school. This will enable students to discuss their reading and books with a wider range of staff and students throughout the school.
