Library

Eastbury Library is located in the centre of the school building, and its mission is to engage our learner in effective independent study. It is stocked with fiction and non-fiction books and currently houses over 2000 resources. The non-fiction section is in the process of being orgainsed in the dual decimal system. This is to prepare our young people for future educational development. In addition to books, the library contains computers and printers which allow access to the school network, VLE and the internet. There are also subject specific magazines and a diverse selection of daily newspapers, ranging from The Financial Times to The Guardian.

Opening Times

Monday-Friday (term-time only): 8.05am- 4.30pm with early bird access to PCs from 8.00 to 8.30. 

Activities in the Library

An after school Homework Club is held in the School Library every evening. The library is open until 4.30pm every day, apart from the last day of each full term when the opening times may vary. In Homework Club the students have the opportunity to work in a quiet and studious environment making use of all the library resources and as well as the librarian.

During the school day the library is open at all times with lunchtime and the morning break being particularly busy. Sixth formers can spend their free periods in the library in silent study.

Local event information is also available in the library.
