*Covid update - Sadly our Library is unable to loan out books during the current situation. We look forward to being able to re-start again when we are advised to do so. In the mean time our students have access to the online Library 'Sora'.
Borrowing a Book
You can borrow up to a maximum of three books at a time for up to three weeks. Please write the return date in your planner and return your books either on or before this date. To extend a loan, please ask the Librarian who will renew it for another 3 weeks.
To encourage students to get involved in reading and improving their English skills, reading is encouraged through:-
- Structured reading for years 7 and 8 in their English lessons.
- Specialised structured reading support run by Bingley Grammar School's SEN Department for targeted low ability readers, both in lessons and through early morning reading sessions.
- Promotion of genres through termly Library themes run by the Librarian promoting reading for pleasure. Three authors are also highlighted with each theme to give students a taste of what motivates an author to write and a little about them.
Earlybird sessions, breaks and lunchtimes
Activities are run during these times including:
- Board Games
- Word Searches
- Among many others.
