library plays an important role in the school’s active encouragement of
the joy and value of reading by ensuring that it’s a welcoming venue,
well stocked and "in tune" with pupils' reading preferences. Reading
for pleasure is further nurtured by regular visits from authors, poets
and storytellers who bring books and stories to life and enlighten your
child in the art of writing.
|Reading for pleasure is positively encouraged|
The computerised library system
means that your children can self issue books, thereby making the
library available to all pupils 24/7 – something which is of particular
value to boarders. Farleigh employs a permanent librarian who is on
hand to advise pupils and staff on reading choices.
classes are regularly timetabled in the library and your child
therefore feels comfortable and at ease working in the library and
making use of the extensive resources.

The library houses
excellent non-fiction and reference sections which support the school
curriculum. Research work for class projects is organised to take place
in the library. Moreover, there are a number of computers which are
school networked and internet linked.
The quiet reading corner
contains a wide range of magazines, comics and daily newspapers. Year 3
pupils are gently introduced to the library through their weekly visits
to listen to a story CD in quiet time.
Pupils and staff are
actively encouraged to make wide use of the library as a learning
resource but also as a peaceful haven for thought, contemplation,
relaxation and even escape.
