The Library is run by Mrs Jeanette Allen.
Opening Hours: 8.30am – 4.30pm Monday to Thursday, 8.30am – 4pm Friday
The Library is a hive of activity throughout the day and offers a warm and welcoming environment where students can read for pleasure, or complete extended learning set by their teachers.
Students have access to the library before and after school, at break and lunch time and during some lessons. We have computers with secure internet access that are a bookable resource, enabling students to complete their tasks.
The library has well-stocked shelves, containing popular fiction, non-fiction and reference titles, with new books added regularly. Daily newspapers and magazines are also purchased for students to read. We ensure that students have a voice which is listened to by the implementation of a ‘Wish List’ which is available at the issue desk. Students can inform Mrs Allen which books they would like to see on the library shelves.
Student volunteers are recruited and trained as library assistants, which we find to be useful in promoting experience of responsibility and enhancing organisational skills.
Competitions are run throughout the year linked with reading and with current events.
So, all in all, the library at The County High School, Leftwich is the place to be!
