Library News

Not only has our fantastic library been rehoused in the new Emmeline Pankhurst Building, but it has had a makeover!

Come and find a comfy cushion and relax with a good book.
Congratulations to all students who took part in March’s ‘Ready Steady Read’ – we raised a fantastic £300 which has been well spent on sprucing up the library shelves.  Have a look at what is new in the library and ask Miss O’Shaughnessy for any recommendations.
