Library Catalogue

Search the library database and renew/reserve books


New to the library, you will be able to use our new e-platform ‘Wheelers’ to loan e-books to your own devices.

Download books to your Kobo, tablet, ipad, laptop, phone or e-reader. You will also be able to borrow an e-reader from the library to use at home (see the library staff for details).

All students have permission to loan one e-book at a time and each will be able to keep the book for three weeks. Use the link below to access the e-platform and log in using your normal school login and password:

Please see the library staff if you require any help with downloading books or would like advice on how to use the platform.

Community Library

Parents are welcome to browse Access-It our Library Catalogue from home and borrow items through their child. Use the link above and search through our extensive choice of resources. Simply ask your child to come and borrow the item and we will issue it to their record. All book loans are for three weeks and DVD loans are for one week. Replacement charges are requested for lost or damaged items.

Useful Resources

Accelerated Reader

For Accelerated Reader users, see if the books you are reading are part of the scheme. Use and log on as a pupil to search for all titles. This is helpful if you are reading a book from home and you would like to see if there is a quiz for it.

Accelerated Reading quizzes can be taken from home.

For parents who wish to see how well their child is progressing with Accelerated Reader, the Homeconnect website will give you access to your child’s bookshelf. The site complements the Accelerated Reader scheme your child uses in school and is a fantastic way to encourage your child’s reading. The website shows you their quiz performance, the points they’ve earned and the book level they are reading. Your child’s usual Accelerated Reader login can be used to access the website.

Newspapers for Schools

Newspapers for Schools is great for searching articles from national and regional newspapers within the past five years.
