Orchard School Bristol



Welcome to our Library! 

We are open every day until 4pm. All students are welcome to use the library for reading or homework at break, lunchtime, and after school during homework club. We have thousands of books and resources available to use in school or to borrow and take home. As well as books we have a range of magazines and periodicals to support curriculum needs as well as students' wider interests. We also have a bank of Chromebooks available for students to borrow during lunchtimes and homework club.
We are adding new books to our library every week so do come in and see what is available! Any questions can be directed to our friendly librarian Marion Andrews, pictured right.
