The library is open every day from 8am to 6pm, and is accessible to all year groups during morning break and lunchtime, during which students can borrow and return books, carry out academic research or read quietly. The library is also open before and after school to allow students quiet study time, access to PCs to research and print out school work and also to request photocopying.
