The Main Academy library is open:
Mon-Thurs: 8:00am – 4:00pm, Fri: 8:00am – 3.30pm
Students are welcome before the first lesson, during lunch breaks to return/borrow books or read quietly, and after 3pm to attend the Homework Club.
The Junior Library is open:
Mon-Thursday: 12.00 – 3.30pm with the Tuesday Library Club finishing at 3.45pm.
Students automatically have a library account, to borrow books students just need to have them issued at the counter. Students can keep resources for 4 weeks before returning them to the library counter. If they need the book for longer we can renew the resource and extend the loan. Students with late or overdue items will be unable to borrow further items. There are no late fees for returning an overdue book, but any books lost will need to be paid for.
