About the library

LSU library is an inclusive and welcoming space that is open to all students including the sixth form. Our central aim is to support reading for pleasure and we play an important role in developing young people’s literacy and research skills. We stock a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, graphic novels, revision guides, textbooks, a selection of magazines and online resources. Students can borrow up to 4 books for a period of 3 weeks. There are laptops for homework and research as well as 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.

The Library is open before school, at break and lunch and after school for homework and extended study. For any enquiries about the Library please contact Olivia Ward or Ms Walshe

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 do a quiz on their books when they are finished using AR. To quiz click here.

We subscribe to an ebook platform so students can always read online on a laptop or phone. To connect to eplatform click here. The eplatform app can be downloaded to phones and tablets and login is the student school email address and password.
