School Library

LSU library plays an important role in supporting students to develop their reading and research skills.  The library is open to all students, including the sixth form, before and after school and during the school day whenever possible.  There is a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, graphic novels, revision guides, textbooks and a selection of magazines and online resources.  Students are able to borrow up to 4 books for a period of 3 weeks.  There are laptops for homework and research and printing and photocopying facilities.   Students are automatically enrolled as a Library member when they join the school.  Library staff are always on hand to offer help and guidance.  For any enquiries about the library please contact 

Accelerated Reader: as part of the literacy strategy to promote reading for pleasure all KS3 students have a dedicated library lesson once a fortnight.  The library uses Accelerated Reader, a computer-based reading monitoring system to support student progress.   Students are expected to read for a minimum of 20 minutes a day and to quiz on their books when they are finished using AR (link for quizzing). 

The library runs a variety of reading events throughout the year including World Book Day celebrations and a Carnegie Children’s book Award shadowing group.
