Library relauches following £6,000 investment

£6,000 Investment in Accelerated Reader Programme and New Look Library

“Raynes Park High School is committed to raising attainment in reading and we hope our new library will promote a love of literature for all our students.” Ms Mistry, Literacy and KS3 Media Coordinator. 

The last term and a half has been very busy for the English and Literacy department, as we have been working hard to re-launch the library. We welcomed Ms Smith, our new English Faculty Support Assistant who will manage our new learning space within the English department. With her help, we have been able to introduce the Accelerated Reader Programme for Yr 7 and Yr 8 students. With a fantastic selection of brand new books the Accelerated Reader Programme will improve the reading skills of our students.

The library is now an inviting space which students can use for reading and independent study. We have also improved the choice within our non-fiction section. Even reluctant readers will find something to interest them. Our ‘High Achieving Highly Skilled’ students are encouraged to come and look at our Contemporary Classics section to further their reading experience and support them in their learning across all subjects, not just in English.

The library was officially opened on Friday 6th February and students flocked to make their selection from all the wonderful new books.
