The John Montague Library at St Bede's

School Closure information (March 2020)

Sadly we can’t welcome students into the library or lend out books, but the librarians are working from home and we are happy to help or provide advice if we can. Please note that while the school is closed, we will extend book loans as necessary although clearly we look forward to receiving the books back when possible. Meanwhile, students can contact us on

We are here to provide a full library service to staff and students and to support all aspects of learning. We are always happy to help with any queries and we love hearing your recommendations for new books.

Opening Times

The library is open every school day from 8.15am to 4.45pm. We are on the first and second floors of the main school building (above reception). Students often use the library for extra study alongside normal lessons and everyone is welcome to come along to read or relax quietly before or after school as well as during break and lunch times. We have a large collection of books to borrow and to use at home or in class, and everyone at St Bede’s is a member of the library. We provide a quiet, calm environment where students can study or research, read for pleasure, as well as access the school IT network and printing facilities. There are computers available on both floors.
