Welcome to the Library

The SHGC library is a modern space, housing a large range of fiction and non-fiction books, with new titles being added regularly. The library is staffed by a full-time librarian, and a part-time library assistant, both of whom are passionate about books and reading, and enjoy connecting with students and helping them find the information they need. Other than reading and learning, the library space is used for a variety of activities by the students, such as doing puzzles, playing cards and other games at lunchtime, or making use of the computers, copier and study rooms to complete homework. We even have the Barbershop singing group practicing in the library every Tuesday morning! Please do come in and see what we have to interest you.
