Testbourne Library has an up-to-date selection of modern and classic fiction and leisure non-fiction. We are currently building our collection to support reading for pleasure across all year groups.

The Library has recently been refurbished to provide a vibrant and stimulating environment to encourage reading. There are also a number of computers which students can use for homework and research.

Students are encouraged to borrow books from the library during tutor time and at break and lunch-times. Year 7 and 8 students also have library lessons once a fortnight as part of their English timetable.

Our Library Catalogue ( can be accessed through the School network via moodle resources or click here for a link. You can search for resources and leave reviews here.

Our librarian is Mrs Bates and she can be contacted by email at
