Library

‘The library has loads of interesting books for every subject’ — U8th former

The Walker Library is a warm and welcoming hub in the school’s academic life. The extensive collection of books, journals and magazines supports the teaching of all our departments as well as the special interests of staff and students.

Over 85% of our resources are available for loan. In addition, the library provides:

  • A comprehensive reference section
  • Space for private study
  • Access to software, intranet, internet, online resources (including JSTOR, ODNB and Grove Music)

  • Wireless network for laptop computers

  • 7 daily newspapers and 60 periodicals

  • Printouts of resources currently in stock

  • Collection of DVDs and CDs

  • Access to British Library for out of print materials and photocopies for research

  • Class use for library lessons and project work based on library materials

  • Photocopying facilities


We are very fortunate in the generous donations made to the Library. Space in a library is always finite, of course, and for this and other reasons we cannot accept all gifts. If you’re considering contributing books,  please email the Librarian first for more information.
