The library exists to inspire and support the learning of the whole school community, the curriculum and beyond. Our belief is that reading brings enjoyment and offers the key skill for lifelong learning, with the power to transform lives. The library actively supports and promotes reading for pleasure and for information. The Bebington High Sports College School Library provides materials that promote the love of reading and support the curriculum of the school. The library provides printed, non-printed, and electronic resources for students and staff. Students utilize library resources to explore ideas within the teaching environment and enhance their independent learning skills by completing assigned work. Students can also select from a wide variety of recreational reading on many topics. Bebington High Sports College students will become independent library users, informed users of information, and life-long learners.
What We Offer
The school library aims to be both comfortable and welcoming offering a multi-media learning space with a constantly evolving set of resources ranging from printed fiction to the world of online information. Students are safe to browse the internet under the supervision of the Librarian and the Impero security system which helps to make sure our students stay safe online. Students can also reset their passwords in the Library for the various online resources used to support the curriculum e.g. Class Charts and Accelerated Reader.
The Reading Cloud
The Reading Cloud is a fantastic new online reading community designed to engage students, parents, teachers and librarians in reading for pleasure. Students can access The Reading Cloud by visiting https://u021683.microlibrarian.net/ and using their school username, the password "abc" and selecting Bebington High Sports College. Students are able to personalise their reading cloud space by creating their own avatar and bookshelf. They can chat online to fellow students, providing a gentle introduction to social media, and access the Library catalogue, book quizzes and ebooks. Students can also leave written reviews along with video reviews to encourage fellow students to get reading.
