Understanding the written word is considered to be a basic skill required by everyone. We believe it should be so much more. The joy of reading to relax, escape, discover and learn is one we want every student to experience, embrace and enjoy. Reading is timetabled on a regular basis in Form time and is actively encouraged throughout the School.
The Preparatory School has a colourful, bright and spacious library run by our Librarian supported by Year 6 Library Monitors who also read to younger children and lead by example showing that reading is fun.
In the Senior School the Justham Library has a range of resources to support study and reading for pleasure. Our Librarian runs book clubs and a creative writing club, she also guides those looking to take more responsibility through the Pupil Librarian Programme.
