The service has been truly excellent, with all the staff going an extra mile in helping with library searches, finding articles or books whilst you dash off to lectures and being hugely supportive & friendly throughout!
The Faculty Library provides a beautiful study environment with spacious desks and lots of natural light. It houses an extensive collection of material on education and related fields, as well as a wide range of resources for use in the school classroom. Other treasures to be found in the Library include a collection of modern Children's Fiction and a small educational archive.
