Buy a Letter for our Library

Thank you everyone who donated books during our book drive, we collected over 1,000 books – but we need somewhere to put them!

We are asking local businesses and individuals to help fund the creation of a library with our ‘Buy a Letter for our Library’ campaign; once a business has donated we will have your logo/name/message displayed in our library once built.

Our aim is to raise £100,000 to build a state of the art facility in our academy, including books and other resources to support students learning at all levels. The plan is to either build a new mezzanine area in the school’s central ‘heart space’ to house the library or re-design part of another existing space, depending how much is raised.

Assistant Head Holly Pateman, who devised the Book Drive at the end of last year, said: “Most students carry out their research on the internet nowadays and it’s easy for them to get out of the habit of using books as a resource, as well as reading for pleasure. We are keen to encourage all our students to develop a love of reading and believe our own library would go a long way towards fulfilling this aim.”

As part of the library project, we hope to develop a ‘Word Wall’ asking businesses and individuals to buy a letter to go on the wall, which will carry their name, logo or message.

Some businesses have already pledged sums ranging from £100 - £1000.

The Word Wall will be a giant crossword, containing words pertinent to the library, with the names of sponsors written beneath each letter.
