Library

The library is a warm and welcoming space accessible to all students and staff. It aims to encourage students to develop a love and enjoyment of books; provide a learning environment for group and individual study and to develop a community of independent lifelong learners.

  • Monday – 8am – 4pm
  • Tuesday- 8am – 3pm
  • Wednesday- 8am – 10am / 12:30pm – 4pm
  • Thursday – 8am – 4pm
  • Friday – 8am – 4pm

The library has over 6,000 books on a diverse range of subjects, and all year groups from Year 7 to Sixth Form are invited to use the space.

Fiction books have genre labels making it easy to find favourite categories such as adventure, horror, fantasy etc. There are also dyslexia friendly books, quick reads and the ever popular graphic novel/manga collection. Students can also browse the non-fiction section, learning to use the Dewey Decimal System to find areas of interest. There is a dedicated careers area, containing information on occupations, open days, apprenticeships and applying for university.

All students are automatically members of the library. Year 7 students are given a library induction when they start at Moseley and have a series of library lessons every fortnight in the autumn term as part of the English curriculum.

Reading Cloud is the library management system and is accessible to all. Students can search the library catalogue, check which books they have on loan, reserve books, read book reviews and create their own reviews of books they have read.

We have a training programme for our team of dedicated student librarians, who are always on hand to offer advice and support. They work closely with the school librarian, and as a team, they always welcome book suggestions from students to be added to stock.

The library also acts as a venue for a wide array of extra-curricular activities:

TuesdayDrop-In Crafts

Thursday Trading Card Games
FridayBoard GamesDungeons & Dragons

All our clubs are open to everyone, so please come along!
