The Library is staffed to help individuals and small groups to use the Library in an effective way. The School Library aims to be a major educational resource for the staff and pupils and to be integral to the life and learning of the School. Besides selecting, acquiring and organising materials to support the School curriculum and providing work space for whole classes, small groups and individuals engaged in study and resource work, the Library encourages independent learning by enabling pupils to develop research skills related to the retrieval, evaluation and use of data. Equally importantly, the Library provides opportunities to stimulate reading by means of displays, book reviews and occasional events.
