Library

The college library is well stocked with current up-to-date reading materials. The college employs a librarian to run this facility so that all students may gain maximum benefit. The book hire system is computerised.

Information and resources are offered in a variety of media across all subject areas and computers with internet access are available to students for research purposes.

All students are members of the library and may use it during lunchtime. First Year students complete a short induction programme and all junior classes are timetabled into the library for one class period per week. This improves literacy and enhances students’ love of reading. Students have a role in the selection of new stock and have set up a vibrant book club. In addition, regular events such as quizzes, games and competitions are very popular among students and staff.
