School & Community Library

School Library

The library is located on the first floor of the Woodrush Community Hub. Worcestershire County Council and Woodrush High School are working in partnership to run an integrated library service for the local community. As members of the public library, Woodrush students have access to the extensive range of services provided by the county’s Libraries and Learning Service. In addition, the extended public library opening hours allow students to borrow books, study, and make use of the computers and printing facilities at the weekends and during school holidays.

In term time there is one qualified school librarian on site who aims to provide a broad selection of material suitable for students from Year 7 to Year 13. The facilities are available to all students from 8:00am until the start of the school day. It is open to KS3 students at break. At lunchtime focussed activities such as crafts, games and silent study are offered. The English Department and the library work closely together to promote an ethos of reading for pleasure. Book Group, which meets regularly on Thursday lunchtimes, introduces students to a wider range of more challenging texts, whilst group discussion enhances speaking, listening and analytical skills. Year 7 students have the opportunity to take part in a short programme of student librarian training. Student librarians regularly volunteer to assist Woodrush students in the library and support with public library activities for younger members of the community.
