The Library

The academy promotes reading not only for pleasure but also for the development of skills needed for successful and independent learning. The academy Library holds a wide range of fiction books to suit all reading abilities and personal interests. Mrs Simpson is available in the Library at break times to help students find and choose a book that they will enjoy. There is also a good selection of non-fiction books available to support the curriculum and enable further study. Additionally, the Library houses an excellent Careers Information area that can be used to find out about life after school. The academy Library is open for students to choose and change books, read quietly, study or complete homework at lunch times.

Oasis Academy Lord's Hill, as part of our market leading Horizons programme, has launched an enormous online library that all of our students can access on their iPads from home or in school. Our students have access to thousands of books, eBooks and audio books as a result! On the students' iPad, there is an app preloaded called 'AccessIt' and, as the name suggests, it is here where you can access the eBooks and see our library stock. There are so many to choose from so everyone will find something to interest them.

Mr Genovese, Curriculum Lead for English, ensures that all students have a PDF guide for using AccessIt, but students are welcome to take their iPad to him for a quick tutorial to get reading! Please click here for the guide so you can help your child at home to access all we have to offer!
