 Our Library

At SHLA we value reading for pleasure and reading for information, we recognise the positive impact that these skills can have upon a student’s life opportunities.  Our library is a key element of this development and provides our students’ with a pleasant environment which inspires and motivates our them to explore books and enjoy their reading.

In order to support our students to develop their reading skills and to enjoy reading for pleasure all our Year 7/8 and 9 students are part of our Accelerated Reader programme.  The programme supports students to choose an exciting book to read which they are expected to carry with them at all times.  Once students have finished reading their book they are then able to take a quiz and if they achieve 100% they can collect a reward from the library.

To ensure that students have every opportunity to be a part of the library community the library is open at the following times:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday  8am-4pm

Wednesday 8am – 2:45pm

There are further opportunities within the library for students to take part in extracurricular activities including:

Monday lunchtime:                        Games club

Tuesdays after school:                  Reading / Film Club

Thursdays after school:                 Knitting club

Keep an eye on the notice board in the library to find out about any new clubs or events that take place.

Please also check the notice board in the library to ensure that you are familiar with the library rules, which enable us to provide a positive environment for our library community.
