A Library full of 23,500 books

We would very much like to welcome pupils to the library and aim to make it a pleasant and stimulating environment. The bean-bags and easy chairs in the Gaunt Centre and Lower Grundy make them comfortable areas to relax. The layout of the Upper Grundy is more formal and suitable for intensive study. We ask that you respect the needs of other library users and remember that the library is a place for quiet study and reading.


The library provides resources to both pupils and staff. It covers the range of curriculum subjects as well as fiction and leisure interests. We have approximately 23,500 books. Most of these are available for loan except those which are marked “Reference”.

Opening Times

The library is open throughout the school day and during Hall in the evenings. Books may be borrowed when the librarians are present:

Monday to Friday 8.30 am – 9.00 pm | Saturday 8.30 am – 12.30 pm.
