How do I borrow books?

All students are members of the library and have their own accounts. Students can come to the library at break time, lunch time and after school. Year 7 and 8 students also have a library lesson once a fortnight. Students can take out two books at a time for a period of three weeks.


Book and homework clubs

Our book clubs run in the library from 3-4pm. Year 7 and 8 Book Club takes place on Tuesdays. Students take part in the Southwark Book Award which shortlists six new books published in the last year.

Manga Club on Fridays is open to all year groups. Students take part in the Excelsior Award for new graphic novels, play games, create and share artwork, and watch anime.

Homework Club takes place in the library on Monday to Thursday, 3-5pm, and on Friday from 3-4pm.


Author visits

We also organise visits from writers, most recently Taran Matharu, Phil Earle, Chris Bradford and Alex Wheatle. Students get to hear them speak, listen to them read and take part in workshops with them. 


Drop Everything and Read

At the start of the school day, every student and member of staff stops what they are doing and reads for 20 minutes. It's called Drop Everything and Read. Tutor groups in Years 7 to 9 all read the same title together, with tutors or students reading aloud. Books have been chosen with themes to engage the students in debate and discussions and authors include Patrick Ness, Neil Gaiman, Sally Gardner and Benjamin Zephaniah.
