Students need school libraries!
Every student deserves a well-resourced and easily accessible library. The tie between libraries and academic success is well documented. It’s been proven that reading for pleasure is the single most important indicator of a child’s future success.
Our new school library online catalogue, Accessit, will further support our students in their reading for pleasure journey and the discovery of great books.
Using Accessit, students can now view our extensive library catalogue, their current loans, reserve books and see news and events happening in the LRC.
Please see Miss Heads for further details.
