The Library opens at 8.00 a.m. every school day, and closes at 4.45 p.m., apart from Friday when it closes at 4.00 p.m. All pupils are encouraged to use the library at break, lunchtime, before and after school. The Library is used for quiet study by the Sixth Form during lesson time, as well as for research lessons.
