About the Somers Library


Our library was opened in 1984 and its super size and design are largely due to the influence of Mrs Somers, who was a teacher here from 1958 until 1991.

It is a warm, inviting space with a large range of books, both fiction and non-fiction.  eBooks are available via our District Library. 

We have desktop computers, along with a printer, photocopier, bean bags (ideal for relaxing in with a good book), and a range of other resources.

It is a busy place used for study, Peer reading, meetings, displaying student work, courses and as an additional teaching space.
