Welcome to the library at Southchurch High School. We are excited to announce that the library will be refurbished over the summer holidays and we look forward to welcoming you back in September 2021 into our freshly designed space.
The library at Southchurch High School not only allows students to read and borrow books, the students can also access computers for homework and leisure use, during the day and after school.
We stock a large variety of books to suit all abilities and interests, the majority of which are on Accelerated Reader. This allows you to record how many words you have read, and progress through the Accelerated Reader certification levels and achieve word millionaire status!
As part of our reading initiatives we encourage students to read The Day, this is a news site that publishes articles aimed at year 7 – 13. It’s a great habit to read at least one article a day, so do a look at the link at the top of the page.
We really want our students to use the library to it’s fullest. Not only do we have student librarians that help out collecting books, tidying and being reading ambassadors, but we run competitions to encourage reading participation year-round. If you’d like to become a student librarian then you’ll find the application form on the link at the top of the page. Likewise, if you want to see what current competitions we’re running, have a look at the competitions and events page.
