Library Welcome

Welcome to The Bemrose School Library.

We promote reading for enjoyment throughout the year by encouraging students to participate in library activities and events, library-based clubs and during lessons. Our aim is to improve literacy standards at Bemrose and to engage students’ curiosity across a wide range of interests.

Cross-curricular support is provided in the form of resources and staff. Library staff are always available to help with research and homework.

The genre reading challenge for all Bemrose Students 

The Roll and Read challenge is…

A chance to experience reading beyond your usual book choice.

An opportunity to excel!
