Our library is open every day before tutor time and during morning break and lunch. It is modern, bright and spacious with over 20,000 resources including fiction, non-fiction, reference, newspapers and periodicals.
The fiction section includes the latest releases as well as the classics, providing lots of choice for the varied interests and abilities of our students. Lavington students are encouraged to read for pleasure and KS3 students have a timetabled reading lesson every week. Our librarian also runs book clubs, competitions and activities throughout the year, as well as getting students to recommend books that their peers might enjoy.
Our non-fiction provides additional resources to reinforce and develop understanding of subjects taught and the world we live in. Careers and higher education information, as well as newspapers and magazines are also provided.
There is a computer area, as well as chess sets and games, and bean bags for quiet reading.
e-readers are also available for use in the library.
Students have online access to our library system where they can view their own account, renew or reserve books, write reviews, search the library catalogue and link to relevant websites to enhance their understanding of a subject.
Ms Brough, our librarian, is always available to help, guide, enthuse and encourage.
At Lavington School we want to encourage a love and passion for reading. It is hugely beneficial to everyone but especially young people.

What if you find reading hard?
Please be aware that some of the books on the lists are written for adults, meaning some will have ‘gritty’ content. Generally by Year 10/11 young people are ready for this, but parents know their children best; if you have queries about suitability, please check online reviews or ask your child’s teacher.
