Resources include a wide range of the latest fiction and non-fiction books, computers, laptops and reference materials.
Study space is available for individual and group work, along with computer access to enable students to carry out research or complete their homework. Comfy chairs are also available for quiet reading.
Colourful, stimulating and continuously changing displays advertise library resources, clubs, events and information.

The Redhill Academy Trust Book Award
The Redhill Academy Trust Book Award is voted for by students from all Redhill Academy Trust academies. It started in 2019 as an award mainly for children in Years 7 and 8. We are now working with students in Years 6 to 11 with thousands of votes being cast each year.
The Redhill Academy Trust Recommended Reads
Bookbuzz is a reading programme run by BookTrust and supported by children's book publishers. We take part in this every year with our Year 7 students in September as part of their induction to the Library. The aim of Bookbuzz is to inspire a love of reading in our students through engagement with varied and high-quality books - they are able to choose a book wich they can then keep.
During 2019 we were chosen to be part of the Bookbuzz promotional film and spent a day with a film crew talking about the books that were part of the 2019-2020 programme.
