The Virtual School Library

The Oak National Academy is launching the Virtual School Library in partnership with the National Literacy Trust [see our Learning Opportunities page] which will offer free books and audiobooks to pupils as they learn from home. This week, you can watch a video from Jacqueline Wilson, read The Story of Tracy Beaker for free, and download fun activities at: https://library.thenational.academy/

Many thanks to you all for your continued support.


As we are now in Tier 4 we sadly have to close the Library & Hub until further notice. However, we can still offer book selection via our SELECT and COLLECT service. Please complete a form either online [via this website] or by hand [forms are available outside the Library, pop it through our letterbox] and we will be in touch when your books are ready for collection. Please note we will only be open for collections on Saturday mornings.

Gardens Project Boost

We are delighted that our Coronavirus Recovery Gardens project has received a grant of £5,550 from the People’s Postcode Lottery Postcode Neighbourhood Trust.  This project incorporates improvements to the Library’s outside spaces which are: the Courtyard garden, the Market Square garden and the area around our car park.
