The Library is a comfortable, welcoming and stimulating environment that provides high-quality resources to support teaching and learning across the curriculum.
All students and staff are automatically members of the Library and have access to a wide range of books, eBooks, magazines, newspapers, online resources and ICT facilities. The Library is staffed by a professionally qualified Chartered Librarian and a Library Assistant who support the development of independent learning and actively promote reading for pleasure.
Whole school literacy is further enhanced and developed through a variety of initiatives which include the International Kids´ Lit Quiz competition, author visits, book fairs, reading groups that shadow a selection of children´s book awards and a specialist reading programme, Accelerated Reader.
The Library’s motto is ‘Inform – Inspire – Achieve’ and we want to equip every student at King James’s with the necessary lifelong learning skills to become confident and successful individuals.
King James´s School Library is now a Rennaisance Partner School. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to contribute to research and development at Rennaisance and raise the profile of our wonderful school.
During the COVID-19 pandemic access to the Library has required timetabling by year group bubble to comply with government guidance and our school risk assessment. Usual opening times are as follows:
Students and staff are welcome to use the Library every school day from 8.15a.m. until 4.30p.m. (3.45p.m. on Fridays) for both collaborative and independent study. The librarians also provide a programme of after-school study skills and homework support.
