Layout 
Books in the Library are divided into two sections, one for Key Stages 3 and 4 and another for Key Stage 5. There are fiction titles to cater to all ages as well as a wide selection of non-fiction and reference books. Fiction titles are sorted by author's surname; Non-Fiction is numbered following the Dewey System. 

There are subscriptions to The New Scientist, the weekly magazine which gives access the most comprehensive round up of the news, ideas and latest discoveries in Science and Technology and also to First News, the award-winning UK national weekly newspaper for children aged 7-14.
