Libraries are not made; they grow.

Library

At Trinity our school library is to be found at the very heart of the school, both metaphorically and physically .We want and encourage our students not only to read, but to love reading. To that end we have a very well stocked library which offers both study and leisure areas. On our shelves you will find a combination of fiction by authors who are currently popular with our students, as well as the latest reference texts to support the curriculum.

As our technology status would indicate, our catalogue and loans system are fully automated. Computers, all with Internet access, are available for student use.

Our library manager works closely with the teaching staff to fill the shelves with interesting and relevant material and our library is in constant use by classes enabling students to develop good research skills.

The library is open both before and after school allowing our students the opportunity to do homework in peaceful surroundings, to catch up on coursework, or, just to have a safe place to browse and relax whilst waiting to be picked up.

Additionally the library provides a venue for showcasing all aspects of our student learning with numerous displays of their work on show. The library is also in demand for many extracurricular functions within our school hosting; Author visits, the Annual Public Speaking Competition, the Creative Writing Club and school governors’ meetings.

The Creative Writing Club has now published 2 books
Black and White Rainbow in 2011
When the Windchime Stops in 2012
Both are available to buy from the library @ £5.99per copy or £10.00 for both, all proceeds go towards the running of the club.
