At Slough and Eton we take our responsibility to ensure that students are able to live life in all its fullness very seriously.  A central part of being able to do this is having the ability and opportunity to read well and widely.  Slough and Eton’s library spaces, collections and events are at the heart of that.  Through the library we offer support to build reading skills and develop habits to create lifelong readers and confident lifelong learners. 

First opened in 2012 in what is now the Small Hall and then relocating in 2017 to its current bright and airy space in the only remaining original school building, the library houses a collection of more than 12,000 titles including books, magazines and a growing collection of digital resources.  The main library houses a fiction and nonfiction suitable to students ranging in age from 11 to 16 alongside 30 computers to facilitate revision, research and wider reading.  Dedicated resources have been brought in to better serve our growing Sixth Form with study space reserved for Sixth Form use. 

In addition to the fortnightly lessons in the library as part of their regular English curriculum, students are able to use the library before and after school as well as at break and lunchtime.  Students (and staff) can check books out for two weeks, and renew them once.  Students and staff can also use our digital e-book platform to read books and listen to audiobooks from a wide-ranging collection.
