Damaged Library Books
It is fantastic that so many of you are using the library, we have on average 100 books issued and returned daily. However, can you please take care of the books, they are checked before we issue them for damage, wear, and tear, but have had a few books returned recently that have been damaged and as a result have had to be withdrawn from circulation and a new copy ordered.
Damage has included: graffiti, torn cover/pages, water damage, missing book jacket, book in several pieces, pages missing, detached from the spine etc.
Paperback books are issued with a plastic cover which costs 50p to replace, and the average book price is £7.99.
If you damage a book please let us know, we will expect a contribution towards the cost of a new book via Squid, Click on this link to show you 'How to make a Squid payment for a damaged/lost library book'.

Covid Isolation Update From 1st April 2022
Routine Covid testing will no longer take place. The Government now advise that Children and young people under 18 who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school when they no longer have a temperature, and are well enough to do so. If a Covid-19 test has been taken and a positive result is displayed, children and young people under 18 should stay home for 3 days from the onset of symptoms or the positive test (whichever came first).
Therefore, any student who has already completed 3 days of isolation, and feels well enough to do so, can return to College on Monday 4th April. A negative test is no longer required to end isolation.
