Welcome to the Henry Box Library

The Henry Box School Library believes that children who read for pleasure are more likely to do better at school, have more rewarding jobs and grow into more thoughtful, imaginative and resourceful adults. 

Our school library is a bright, engaging space with a wide range of books to appeal to young people.  We work hard to find the right book at the right level for our students.  For reluctant readers, we encourage them to try new authors, quick reads, fiction/non-fiction, graphic novels and magazines.

A school librarian performs the essential task of nurturing a child so they grow from functional reader into book lover and lifelong reader. #SchoolLibrariansMATTER

The library is a whole school resource, hosting lessons, study, research, clubs and events.  It is open daily for break and lunchtimes it is often a safe haven and a great place for students to meet or make new friends, everyone is welcome in the library!

Sixth Form Study Area

Within the Library there is a separate silent student area for Sixth Formers. This has its own separate selection of resources, including up to date core English texts and the latest copies of subject textbooks as well as a large collection of extension reading materials.  When the library is free from time tabled lessons the sixth formers are encouraged to use the rest of the library for silent study and have full access to the computers.
