New School Library

Introducing Oakwood’s brand new library!

Oakwood Junior School’s library is now open…


Oakwood Junior School is very pleased to announce that the transformation our new school library is complete and now open!


The library has been specifically designed to encourage and celebrate reading for pleasure in order to foster a reading culture that enriches students’ academic and personal growth and, most importantly, where children develop a lifetime love a reading.


We currently have over 5000 books, both fiction and non-fiction, for students to borrow with even more on the way! We have made sure that our pupils are exposed to a wide variety of high-quality texts which are diverse and mirror their lives in a relatable way.


Our inviting library space, which is the prime hub of our school, offers a safe and quiet space for students to read, study, browse and borrow books. The library has various reading nooks, comfy new shelves and carefully designed areas where children are able to choose a book and absorb themselves into its magic.


We are very lucky to have a full-time librarian – Mrs Grundle- who has a vast knowledge of books. She is supported by our Reading Ambassadors who help run the library by issuing and returning books throughout the school day.
