Our stock is varied and current with books and other materials chosen to support the curriculum and to further students’ reading and research. We try and offer a good selection of contemporary fiction as well as the classics, and are always glad to receive suggestions or recommendations for good books to purchase for the library.

As well as a wide range of books we provide access to a variety of magazines, journals and newspapers. We offer subject periodicals for further reading up to A level, and we subscribe to a daily newspaper, a children’s newspaper and various magazines for adults and young people.

Books are loaned out for a period of two weeks initially and can generally be renewed if needed.  DVDs and CDs are loaned for one week, and some resources (text books etc) may be borrowed overnight or are kept in the reference library to use here. Reminders will be issued on overdue loans (and if books are not returned after a reasonable period, we will charge for replacing them). Students may borrow up to three items at any one time.
