The light, airy, well-stocked school library is hard to miss as it is prominently positioned at the front of Outwood Academy City. It can be reached via the Student Reception area.

The Library plays a major role in student life, as students have regular reading sessions as part of their English Literacy lessons, other curriculum areas also use the facilities for research activities. The Library acts as a place of discovery and learning for students throughout their time at the Academy.

Students are able to learn about themselves and the world at their own pace but come to realise that, the more they read for pleasure, the broader the vocabulary and deeper the level of understanding of their world is.

The Library is an area students can use before school or at break and lunchtimes. It is open every day from 8:00am to 8:25am and from 2:30pm to 3:30pm for enrichment activities or to complete homework. Students may borrow two books for two weeks (or more at the LRC Manager’s discretion). Resources borrowed from Outwood Academy City are the responsibility of the borrower and should be returned in perfect condition.
