Library

 

Welcome to Bonus Pastor Catholic College Library

 

The Library is open to all students to carry out research, complete homework or read.

It’s for our students to use and enjoy.

Our aim is for students to become independent readers and we are continually looking at ways to encourage reading for pleasure.  A KS3 and KS4 ‘Recommended Reads’ booklet is always available to give students inspiration on what to read next. Please see the documents section for our recommended reading lists.

All Year 7, 8 and 9 students are timetabled into the Library; it is an opportunity for quiet reading and to change and talk about their books.  Students can participate in reading challenges; we have been supporting the Lewisham Book Award a reading challenge aimed at our Year 7 and 8 students and more recently we have begun a KS4 reading challenge. Students in Year 7 and 8 can also work towards reading certificates for finishing books.  Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum certificates are awarded according to the number of books our students read.

Information and resources are available for everyone including:

  • Laptop and desktop computers linked to our network with access to many software packages and the Internet.
  • A well-stocked library with over 6000 fiction, non-fiction titles and reference books.
  • Daily newspapers and magazines.
  • A Stationery Shop where students can buy basic equipment at very competitive prices.   See our current pricelist in the documents section.
