 The sunlight of literature can touch hearts and souls . . . (Michael Morpurgo)

Open to all pupils from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm every day.

Our school library is a well resourced centre, with thousands of books on our shelves from fiction to non-fiction and reference, you’re sure to find just what you are looking for. Whether it is reading for pleasure or researching topical information to help you complete a project, the library should be your first port of call.

The library is staffed by the librarians, Mrs Gorringe and Miss Hopkins, but run for the pupils, so we’re always happy to hear your ideas on how we can make it better, and to talk to you about what you are reading.

If you’ve just read a fantastic book but we don’t have it, please tell us and the next time we are ordering new books, we will ensure it is considered for purchase!

If you are a new Year 8 student, we welcome you and your class with a Library Induction Talk to introduce ourselves and help you find your way around the shelves, ensuring you make the most of the resources on offer.

If you are a new student in Years 9 to 14, or a new teacher, please do introduce yourself and we will happily show you the ropes!

Next door to the library is the SEON Room (Sullivan Education Online Network) which is equipped with a suite of computers to facilitate research online. You may use the computers for school work at times when it is not being used by classes.

All pupils and staff are members of the library, and all are able to borrow books to read at home – you’re allowed to have them for 2 weeks at a time. If someone else has the book you want, you can ask to reserve it so that you can have it as soon as it’s returned.

Our regular library newsletter will let you know all about what we in the library have been up to. Go on, have a look!

BOOK CLUB


For anyone in years 8 to 10 who loves reading, there is a regular after-school Book Club where you can get together with library5other book-lovers to chat.

We meet every other Monday between 3.30 pm and 4.30 pm to discuss books, play book-related games, preview any new library books and participate in trips to other schools and events celebrating reading.

Each year we field a team at The Kids Lit Quiz and take part in the Northern Ireland Book Award scheme.

Why not check out what they are about?
