As we approach the Easter holidays, we are delighted to reveal the final design for our new school library.

Over the Easter holidays, the library will be re-decorated and new carpets lain in readiness for the installation of our new library furniture, early in the summer term.
Update: 15th April 2016
During the Easter holidays, our library was decorated and a new carpet was fitted. We are all now looking forward to the library furniture installation, in the next couple of weeks.

On Monday 25th April, Miss Sugden, Mrs Morris, Mrs Waghorn and a team of school staff members began the mammoth task of moving all our books back in to the library. Mrs Stanley also gave her time and assisted, by creating some unique and thought provoking images, taken from popular children's books. She then incorporated these in to the library scheme, creating a colourful and vibrant library.
Our thanks go to all our school staff for supporting each other, so that our whole school community can benefit from our new library space. What do you think?
Update: 5th August 2016
