Sandringham Library is a vibrant and busy place with an excellent selection of resources and a constantly updated set of displays. The fiction stock is housed on wooden shelving and the non-fiction stock is housed on bright yellow shelving. The Library also has a Connexions Centre with useful careers information.
The study area has seating and study tables used regularly throughout the school day by classes doing silent reading sessions or research tasks. There are also many computers available for students to produce and print out work.
On arrival at Sandringham School, Year 7 students take part in a series of lessons in the Library to ensure that they become independent learners as quickly as possible.
The Library Reading Challenge is a scheme for years 7-9 to encourage reading and improve literacy, with students able to attain various rewards along the way.
The Library has an excellent team of Library student helpers. The students range from year eight to year twelve and help behind the desk during their free time.
