“What a school thinks about its library is a measure of what it feels about education.”

― Harold Howe

Our well-resourced Library is situated in the oldest part of the Senior School and is generously proportioned, with separate accommodation for both Upper and Lower Schools as well as our Archive holdings. It provides a calm and conducive environment for study and reading.

The Library provides up-to-date books, cutting edge e-resources, foreign language and popular DVDs, supporting both recreational and hobby reading alongside extended reading for curriculum subjects and research. Providing daily newspapers and a selection of magazines and journals encourages engagement with current affairs and new developments in Science, IT, Art and Sport.

We also have a separate library provision in Lovell House Infant School and our Junior School, both of which are well-stocked and well-used by our younger pupils.
