LSHS library is situated on the ground floor of the main building with a central location, easily accessible to all students. The library is a calm, vibrant and welcoming space. We have a wonderful photographic display around the library showing the school when it first opened in 1959, and school events up until the present day.
The library offers a supportive, relaxed and comfortable environment whilst upholding the school values and focusing on the students’ wellbeing as well as having new, relevant and contemporary books. The library has a computer area where students can complete and print homework. The library is used for research, revision and study, but most importantly used to read for pleasure which is hugely encouraged at LSHS. With over 6,500 up-to-date books there is an abundance of fiction and non-fiction books for students to choose from.

We have annual book groups such as Carnegie Shadowing and The Enrich Book Group in conjunction with the other Academies in the MAT, where students are encouraged to join. In conjunction with the English Department, KS3 students have half-termly library lessons. We celebrate World Book Day. We have an annual Readathon to raise money for children in hospital to be able to have access to books and authors. The library is a dynamic space where we hold author/poet visits and for the past two years we have held a Harry Potter afternoon full of quizzes and games that students have enjoyed. These all take place in the school library. Look out for new up and coming events in the school library.
