DAVENANT FOUNDATION SCHOOL’S LIBRARIES ARE HERE FOR YOU.
The Library provides an environment for you to expand your mind and encourage independent learning.
Head Librarian, Mrs Bird, and her dedicated team, advise, support and provide all members of the School with books for information, leisure and pleasure, for all abilities and ages.
As well as a collection of approximately 15,000 books, the Library provides newspapers, a wide range of periodicals, audio and compact discs, videos and dvd’s. In line with the School’s Language College status, the Library also has an expanding Languages section.
The resources in the Library are all catalogued in the Library Management Software, called Alice.
The Library is involved with promoting national events and supports internal awareness issues.
All students and staff are members of the Library. Members of staff and late entrants to the school may need to come and tell us of their arrival so that we can add them to the Library membership.
Study skills are the key to accessing and using the library. All students take part in an induction programme which develops independent study skills.
Individual pupils, small group or whole classes use the Library for research throughout the day as the need arises.
Mrs Bird and her staff look forward to welcoming you into the School’s Library.
