Welcome to our library!

Are you new to our school?

Welcome! The library is for EVERYONE. The library is for YOU.

Do I have to 'join' the library?

No - once you are a student, you are a library user automatically. 

Who works for the library?

We have two librarians - Ms Swinyard (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday) and Ms Elliott (Tuesday). You can email Ms Swinyard if you have any questions about the library.

The library is open:

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays 8 a.m. - 4:45 p.m.

Tuesdays 8:30 a.m. - 4 a.m.

Thursdays 8:30 a.m. - 4:45 p.m.

What happens in the library?

The library is a physical room in the heart of our school site, where we store books, magazines and other resources. It is also a study space where you may visit with a teacher or come in your free time for some peaceful reading or study time.

The library also exists as a community of students who love reading and learning. We have clubs, competitions, special events and space to meet like-minded students.

If I'm new to secondary school, what do you recommend I start with?

Join the free local Haringey council library too and take part in their national Summer Reading Challenge to read 6 books over the 6 weeks of holiday.

Here is a list of all our Haringey libraries. Once you join, you can use any branch as well as their online ebooks.
