The Library currently holds a very large stock for students to access for homework or their own reading pleasure.
Our stock consists of both fiction and non-fiction books, a range of magazines and some DVDs.
Computer access is also available via PC’s and IPads, daily before school, as well as at break for students to do research or complete their homework.
Mrs Day actively promotes a lifelong love of reading with the students through various promotions held within the academy, such as:
*encouraging students to read who are actively taking part in reading schemes;
*actively taking an interest in what the students are currently reading and suggesting other titles they may like to read;
*running events, projects and competitions in line with national Library Celebration days e.g World Book Day, National Poetry Day, National Libraries Day.
The Accelerated Reader (AR) scheme encourages Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students to enjoy reading a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books that are available in the academy library, thereby supporting literacy in all areas of the curriculum.
Library staff and teachers have worked hard in promoting reading and understanding using books and online quizzes to ensure progression in the AR programme.
Students can take quizzes from home once they have finished reading a book by accessing the following website: Accelerated Reader
