Home to over 2000 fiction and non-fiction books, the recently refurbished Bredon Hill Academy Library is open every lunchtime from 12.30 – 12.55pm. Many of the new books in the library were bought using money raised by the Book Fair, which takes place twice a year. It is staffed by teachers, teaching assistants and Year 8 librarians, all of whom can assist students in choosing books that are appropriate to their age and interests. Students may select up to two books at a time and may keep their books for a period of up to four weeks. Books may be renewed for a further four weeks provided that no one else has reserved them.
The library also contains a bank of computers that can be used for research purposes. It is a calm, quiet place where students can come to read or work at lunchtimes. During lesson times teachers may bring their classes to the library to work or read, and our volunteer parent readers listen to individual children read in the library on a regular basis.
Reading is central to teaching and learning at Bredon Hill and all students are expected to have a reading book with them at all times. Please encourage your children to make good use of the library – it is a resource for their use.
