We have both a physical and online library so that students can access fiction and non-fiction, anywhere and at any time.
We are particularly proud of ePlatform, our online library as students can access these online resources from their Chromebooks during form time, free time or English lessons as well as from home. There are thousands of titles at their fingertips and we take time to gather reading lists suited to age and ability so that students feel supported in choosing the right books for them.
We have a widely stocked library with books covering a comprehensive range of subjects to support students’ learning and provide information on their many interests as well as a generous number of fiction books to stimulate their imaginations, spark their empathy for other lives, to excite, to sadden and to give them optimism. We also have a large selection of slim reads for reluctant readers, and a dedicated graphic novels & manga section.
Our new half-termly library magazine highlights all the events and activities we have held in the library. Featuring student reviews, all the new books we’ve had in, and photos of the random things we find left in the library. We also feature recommended reading lists and interviews with children’s authors.
Reading Challenges at Katherine Warington School
At Katherine Warington, we encourage all students, teachers and parents to keep reading. One of the ways we do this is through our reading challenges. Our English department and Library staff work together to promote the challenges and provide recognitions and prizes along the way.
