The Library

Introduction

Head of Library: Ms L. Ellis-Barrett, LEllis-Barrett@stjohns.surrey.sch.uk

The Library aims to:

  • support the whole curriculum by providing a balance of book and non-book resources and software appropriate to the School’s needs;
  • support and develop information literacy and research skills;
  • facilitate and promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure; and,
  • provide an atmosphere in which private study, group research and personal enquiry can flourish together.

Library lessons are timetabled fortnightly for Fourth Form pupils in conjunction with the English Department. Other subject teachers across all year groups are encouraged to bring their classes to the Library to use the resources.  The Library also offers guidance on research strategies for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). All materials and handouts from the Library are available on the School Intranet.
