Scholarship Examination Day - 20th January 2020

This Month in the Library 

Hello and welcome to our first blog of this academic year.  September was spent sorting out the library and recruiting new librarians but now we are all set and ready to go.

The librarian team has grown yet again this year and we now have in excess of 20 student librarians!  The end of September also saw the launch of our new book groups. Over the next few weeks students in Year9-10 Book Group will be reading Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier, whilst Yr 7-8 students will be reading Frank Cottrell Boyce’s Framed.  Year 9-10 students will meet on 4th November and Year r7-8 students will meet on 11th November.

The “Book-et List”

This year, the English Department and the school librarian team are going to be working hard together to get everyone reading so look out for the soon to be published “Book-et” list – a compilation of recommended reads which members of Westbourne staff feel students should read before they leave school!  Each month, the library blog will be featuring one member of staff’s choice so to get the ball rolling, here are Dr Shirtcliffe’s recommended reads:
