Pupils have a weekly library slot when they visit the Library and change their books. They can also spend some time in there, reading the different texts available: newspapers and magazines as well as over 2000 books! There are also audio books and DVDs available.

We have just introduced (Jan 2016) the roll of honours board, where those pupils who have gained their Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum reading award will be publicly named and celebrated. Certificates are also given to these pupils, as well as badges for gold and platinum readers. Pupils gain an award for every 15 books they read.

There are a wide variety of reading challenges we also encourage pupils to enter throughout the year. Some of them are based within our own library, eg: The Safari, Alphabet and Colour challenges and others are nationwide run competitions. One of our pupils recently won first prize in the Star Wars Sith creation competition- well done Catherine!
