Research shows that children who read more succeed more. The purpose of ABC library is to make our library a calm and welcoming place to our students, teachers and school members as we promote a love of reading. Reading supports all aspects of school life and forms the basis for academic achievement.
Our collection is interesting with a mixture of stimulating contemporary and classic fiction that motivates children to become readers for life. We offer a vast range of fiction for all ages plus graphic novels, audiobooks, newspapers and comics. There are approximately 10,000 fiction and non-fiction books.
Teachers and other educationalists can borrow up-to-date, newly-published and specialist children’s materials to support both the curriculum and reading for pleasure. We are dedicated to increasing children and young people’s access to and interest in reading, as well as working with schools and academies to support staff and improve school library provision.
We pride ourselves on the fostering of strong values: perseverance, respect, engagement, compassion, integrity, self-esteem and excellence. We endeavour to provide our students with worthwhile experiences which they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.
