The Bramston library

Our library occupies two spacious floors at the heart of the school and is fully staffed all day.

There are over 15,000 titles on the catalogue including 3000 of classic, modern and contemporary fiction which are in heavy demand from both pupils and staff, as well as a substantial biography section.

There is a generous budget for library purchases which enables us to reach beyond the classroom textbook to ensure that pupils have a fuller knowledge and understanding of their subjects. Teaching staff make suggestions for purchases to enable us to complement and broaden the resources in specialist subject areas as well as developing the fiction collection.  We have an extensive reference-only section which covers all the disciplines:  in addition we take four daily newspapers, a local weekly newspaper, five weekly current affairs magazines and forty-three periodicals and journals. 

Internet access is available in the library and all new pupils are given library lessons so that they can effectively use the library resources.
