Borrowing Books:

Students can have two books on loan for a period of two weeks. Books needed for a longer period, should be brought in and reissued.  Additional books may be borrowed if required for projects or homework.  Any lost books must be replaced or paid for. 

School Catalogue:

Every student is given personal login details, which enables them to write reviews about books they have read, reserve books and keep track of their current and past loans. 

The Day:

Is a daily news service, where the most important news of the day is presented in a clear and easily accessible format, containing suitable and relevant topics to stimulate discussion and engage students. News analysis and features are written to raise students’ awareness and understanding of the ‘big issues’.
