The library at Soham Village College is at the heart of the school, situated opposite the science block. It is managed by Mrs Webb (Librarian) and is open from 08:20 until 16:00 daily for students to access learning materials, computers and reading books. Students can borrow up to three books at a time for a two week period, in addition to DVDs and magazines that are also available to borrow. Mrs Webb is also supported by a fantastic team of trained student librarians.
The library has quiet study tables for students to work and learn, as well as a dedicated quiet reading area for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of student life. Students are also welcome to borrow from a small selection of board games, and from September 2021 there will also be access to a small craft and Lego area.
As well as an extensive non-fiction area for students to use, there is a wide range of fiction reading materials to appeal to all interests. These include dyslexia friendly print, audiobooks, manga and graphic novels, comics and magazines as well as a great selection of teen and young adult novels across all genres.
The library is also home to thirty computers available before and after school (as well as at break and lunch) for students to complete their homework. The school’s homework club is also based in the library and this is run after school until 16:00 from Monday to Thursday each week. These sessions have support from a teaching assistant who can help students to complete their work.
There is also a selection of extra-curricular activities available at break and lunchtimes including a reading group, bingo sessions and an online games club.
