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 clubs

Three book clubs run in the library from 3-4pm.

  • Year 7 and 8 Book Club takes place on Thursdays. Students take part in the Southwark Book Award which shortlists six new books published in the last year.
  • Year 9 and 10 Book Club is on Wednesdays. Students read and discuss the latest young adult books and shadow the national Carnegie Medal. 
  • Manga Club on Fridays is open to all year groups. Students take part in the Excelsior Award for new graphic novels, create and share artwork, and watch anime.

Author visits

We also organise visits from writers, most recently Taran Matharu, Phil Earle, Bali Rai 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.
