The Library and Learning Centre

The Library & Learning Centre

The brand new library is located in the heart of the school on the 3rd Floor. It offers students an extensive collection of physical and digital resources to explore their vast educational, artistic and recreational needs. With two bookable collaboration rooms and an array of different seating arrangements, library users are able to work collaboratively or independently, while soft furnishings allow them to read, relax and reflect.

The aim of the Library & Learning Centre is to support the vision and mission of the school. It enables students to explore the limitless horizons of their own potential, as they follow their own individual pathways through the school’s IBMYP, IGCSE, IBDP and IBCP curricula. There is a strong relationship between the learning through units of inquiry in our classrooms and opportunities to extend knowledge and understanding in these areas by making use of the digital and physical resources in the library. With an emphasis on research skills and academic honesty, library resources and services support and challenge learners to become expert users of information; the research questions, methodologies, use of sources and written responses of our Year 12 and 13 IBDP and CP Internal Assessments, Extended Essays and Theory of Knowledge Essays reflect this. The library’s dynamic environment provides a safe and holistic learning space that inspires a love of reading, learning and inquiry into both local and global contexts. This, in turn, establishes a firm foundation for their future journey into further education.

Students can self-checkout and return books using their school Octopus card, and use the library printer to print out their class assignments. They are encouraged to help build the library collection through personal recommendations.
