Welcome to St Edward’s Library

Providers of fine fiction, journeys into knowledge, and book recommendations for fun and research.

The Library has an impressive collection of books, keeping up to date with current fiction titles to suit multiple age ranges and abilities, and also providing non-fiction material to encourage research and curiosity across and beyond the curriculum.

Younger pupils will have at least one lesson a week in the Library that is used to nurture their reading ability, and to provide them the wonderful pleasure of getting lost in a good book.

The Library runs a number of reading clubs throughout the year, including the Itty Bitty Carnegie Committee, which shadows the Carnegie Medal award for young fiction.  We are also proud celebrants of World Book Day, National Poetry Day, and all avenues of creative writing.

We are open throughout the school day, including break and lunchtimes, and the Librarian is always on hand to offer reading suggestions, start learners on their way to becoming confident researchers, and teach students about how to learn independently outside of the classroom.

Sixth Form students are welcome to use the Library during free periods as a place of quiet study, and may always ask the advice of the Librarian at any time.
