How You Can Help The Library Grow

To purchase new books

We maintain a Wish List which will be updated shortly.

Used Book Donations

We're often asked whether the library accepts gifts of second-hand books, and the answer is yes, if they're current and in good condition! Donations of lightly-used books are such a help to replace damaged and worn-out stock. Books need to be in perfect or near-perfect condition - no creased, loose or torn covers, pages or cracked spines; no annotations. colouring-in or other markings. This is because school library books come in for a tremendous amount of wear and tear as they're so frequently borrowed and handled by dozens of children, so they need to be in tip-top condition to last us for many years.

We've received many generous donations recently, so there are certain authors we don't need at the moment - these are:

- Dav Pilkey (Captain Underpants series)

- Adam Blade (Beast Quest series)

- JK Rowling (Harry Potter series)

- Julia Donaldson (rhyming picture books)

- Rachel Renee Russell (Dork Diaries series)

- Michael Morpurgo

- Enid Blyton

- David Walliams

- My Little Pony

- Phonics books from any scheme

We're always grateful for good picture books, up-to-date non-fiction (published within the last five years), and graphic novels too!

Please contact Mrs Wood via the office if you have donations.


We're so lucky to have a dedicated library - many schools don't - and with your help we can make it amazing for all our children. We run Scholastic Book Fairs every year and these are not only huge fun but help contribute to our book-buying all year round. We also sometimes run fundraising drives alongside events such as World Book Day, so look out for those!


Do you run a local business? Could you sponsor a bundle of books? We'd be very happy to add book plates to each book sponsored as a thank you for your generosity. Please contact Mrs Wood to discuss.
