Sixth Form



How to use
the Library


The Library at Lunch, Break and Session 6 - a place to work, play chess or read.
Our modern, purpose built library is a special feature of the school and a focus for many learning activities both during and after school.
We are told that is is one of the best stocked libraries in the county and the ICT facilities provide access to a huge range of learning materials via the school computer network and Eclipse.
The library is supervised throughout the day and is open after school for Session Six 'Studyzone' from Monday to Thursday. This gives students the opportunity to do some independent study for homework and is a good time for some quiet reading. On Thursdays, we also run a Chess Club which is well attended.

Eclipse Database

The Library has a management system called Eclipse.  It helps pupils keep track of which books they have borrowed and when they are due back. It also enables pupils to find out what books there are in the library to help them with their reading and their studies, good websites for research for homework etc. When students log on to any computer in the school, they use Eclipse. Pupils can see the Top Ten most borrowed books, what‘s been returned recently, new additions to the library, and reviews by other pupils. Eclipse has facilities such as Book of the Week, News, What Next? and My Stuff which gives pupils their own space to say which books/DVDs/CDs/websites they love.
