We offer students appropriate resources and support them in a calm environment which is centrally located in the school. Resources are selected based on the curriculum in close consultation with all the Faculties. These include both fiction and non-fiction books, daily newspapers, magazines, DVDs, reference books, revision guides and text books. The Library also has many computers and we provide an online library catalogue and online resources, and give students appropriate training in their use.
We provide reading lists for all year groups from 7 to 13, which are available both in the Library and online.
The Carnegie Medal is awarded annually to the writer of an outstanding book for children. If you would like more information on the winner and shortlist, please visit the website: www.carnegiegreenaway.org.uk
We organise library events throughout the year including arranging teams for the inter-schools Literature Quiz, Carnegie Shadowing, Stan Lee Comic Book Shadowing and Read for Barnet, as well as author visits to the school.
In Year 7, students will follow a library induction programme in which they are introduced to the library. They will be shown how the catalogue works and how the books are organised.
