Library

A very popular room! The library is open every day to all pupils and teachers; it houses around 9000 fiction and non-fiction books in English and French. We also have many audio resources and magazines for children and teachers.

The librarian and her assistant receive all classes for weekly workshops on different literary topics (such as poetry writing sessions, reading challenges…) Every day pupils can enjoy a quiet time to read or borrow books during the lunch playground time.

Whilst the ever-increasing use of online tools, computers and tablets is now part of life, we strongly believe in the continued traditional use of the library room and the physical use of books. This not only gives the children an opportunity to increase their learning, but also to develop their imagination, to discuss stories, to learn to respect peace and quiet, and to enjoy the pleasure of turning the page and reaching the end.

We also believe in the value of working together, to ask a question or for help; to register taking a book out and returning it in a timely manner.


We promote the culture of French and English literature through regular purchases of new books and through meetings with authors and illustrators.

The library takes part in many celebrations (“Roal Dahl Day”, “Book day”, “Press Week”…) and literary prizes (“Les Incorruptibles”, “The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal”…).

You can feel the love that the staff here have for the children, and the children have for the staff.”
