The Michael Parker Library is located in the heart of the Senior School, on the first floor. We have worked hard to create a welcoming, comfortable and attractive space - a 21st Century Library in our lovely 1828 building! The Library has been designed to enable flexible use: classes, small groups, private study, with ICT facilities and a growing collection of resources.
The Library is open throughout the day and, during lessons, classes may be booked in or groups of students may be sent by teachers to work. At lunchtime and after school (until 5.15pm) students may use the Library to study, research, choose resources or relax and read. If students want to use a computer after school or at lunchtime, they should book in advance.
Students may borrow and reserve books and other resources. They are encouraged to ask for help and advice with selecting resources and research methods. Students are welcome to recommend titles as we want to buy new stock that they will enjoy.
We are constantly developing a range of multi-media resources to support and extend the curriculum, including books, newspapers, magazines and DVDs. The Library also has computers with access to the network and the Internet.
