Pupil Librarians

The Student Librarian Programme enables pupils to get involved with the running of the Library and to have a positive impact on the school community, whilst developing skills for leadership and teamwork.

This programme gives pupils skills by allowing them to work together to make a difference to the library and the school as a whole. All applicants will be trained in various aspects of library administration and are rewarded with a certificate on completion of each stage. The skills they gain are transferable across the curriculum and in the world of work.
