The PLC is dedicated to promoting reading for pleasure, independent research and study skills. It provides opportunities for students to develop socially through leadership roles and focussed enhancements.  We are open daily unitl 4pm for students to read, research, complete homework or attend library based enhancements.  Castle Manor currently runs the Reading Ambassador programme, along with many other Secondary schools in the Samuel Ward Academy Trust. This provides students with the scope to grow as leaders and gives them to the opportunity to promote reading among their peers and across schools.  This role continues to grow as we receive more and more interest from students wishing to take part in the programme.

All students in Years 7, 8 and 9 participate in the Accelerated Reader programme as part of their timetable.  The programme develops independnt reading skills and nurtures a love of reading for pleasure.  

You can also access our entire library catalogue through Eclipse. We encourage students to log in to Eclipse to check their Library accounts, reserve books and leave book reviews.
