In May 2015, author Elen Caldecott officially opened the library at Wicklea Academy. It is situated in a central position of the school providing easy access to all pupils. This reflects the school ethos that reading and the enjoyment of books should be of the highest profile.
Open on a lunch time from Monday to Thursday, children can borrow books to take home for up to two weeks, issuing and returning them using our computerised system. This facility enables us to track the borrowing and ensure we keep up to date with current trends.
The library is well stocked with a superb selection of resources which includes not only classic literature but some of the most recent publications by today’s hottest children’s authors. The selection also includes graphic novels, joke books, picture books and poetry.
