Borrowing Books

All students and staff are entitled to use the facilities in our library.

We use a computerised catalogue and issue system called Eclipse which can be used to search the library from any computer. Once you have logged in you will be able to search for books in the school library, read a summary (what it is about) of any book, write your own review, reserve books. (link to Eclipse on right hand side of this page and below).

Students may borrow 3 items at a time. You are able to keep books for 14 days.

If you cannot find a book you would like in the library, we encourage you to ask, so we may consider ordering/adding the book to our stock.

We also have the Ebook platform that can be accessed by clicking the link on the right hand side of this page (or below) and login with your school computer login details.

Overdue Items – Students are responsible for ensuring their books are returned to the library by the due date. The ‘return by’ date is stamped on the Date Due sticker inside the book. If a pupil loses a book, there will be a charge for replacing it. Alternatively, we may accept a book in replacement if it is in good condition and appropriate for our Library.
