Reading is the key to learning and at King’s Hall the Library is very much at the heart of the school, in every way. It is a vibrant and engaging place where pupils are encouraged to discover the joys of reading for pleasure and it is also a fantastic resource for academic research.
The Library is run by Mrs Marcuccilli, a qualified librarian, who is on hand to support and encourage pupils on their reading journeys. There is a wealth of fiction to discover, as well as a wide range of magazines, newspapers and comics to enjoy. The outstanding non-fiction collection and range of online subscription resources, such as Britannica Schools Online, support all areas of the curriculum.
Pupils in all year groups are invited to take part in the hugely popular termly Book Club meetings, to which parents of our younger pupils are also invited. Reading-related activities, competitions and quizzes take place throughout the year to inspire, enthuse and challenge our young readers. In addition, the Library also hosts regular visits from renowned children’s authors.
