EPHS HAS TWO PURPOSE-DESIGNED LIBRARIES, THE LOWER LIBRARY FOR KS3 STUDENTS AND THE UPPER LIBRARY FOR KS4/KS5 STUDENTS AND STAFF.
The two libraries provide a welcoming, supportive and safe environment for formal and informal learning, where students are recognised and valued as individuals.
The Libraries contain a diverse range of fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, audio books, magazines and reference material. Stock is selected by qualified staff to meet the needs of all students, whatever their reading abilities and enthusiasm, from the most able readers to reluctant readers and those with lower reading ability and special educational needs. Computers and printers are available in the libraries for students to use for independent study.
We offer a vibrant programme of events, competitions and author visits, creating enriching experiences and opportunities to motivate students to become lifelong readers. These include celebrating World Book Day, an annual whole school event, and taking part in the prestigious CILIP Carnegie and Greenaway Shadowing Awards. Previous author visits by award winning authors including Alex Wheatle, Marcus Sedgwick and Chris Bradford, have proved particularly inspirational and motivating for our students. Where possible, we work with local book sellers to supply books for book signings and involve our Library helpers in hosting and reporting author events.
