Summer Term - April to July: Using the Library

We're so glad to have you back in school, and are really pleased that our Library space is open again for you to visit.

Year Group access is currently on different days, in line with your year 'bubbles':
- Mondays and Fridays: Years 9, 10 and 11
- Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays: Years 7, 8 and Sixth Form

The Library's online services continue to be there for you at any time.

Mrs Smith is always happy to help with all your reading and research needs - whether in person or online! For online enquiries, just email

Reserving books in school or elsewhere:

Just browse Accessit, the Library Web App, and reserve the book(s) you want... (remember to log in to your school Google account first!)

We'll email you when the books are ready to collect from the Library. Please remember to pop into the Library on one of your 'bubble' days to collect them.

Stuck for ideas? - you can fill in this quick form (make sure you are logged into your YHT Google account first) and have a book specially selected for you!

There are lots of ideas and links on the Accessit dashboard too; or take a look at the Quick Lists! More are being added all the time.

If you have any questions or need any suggestions, just get in touch with Mrs Smith!
