The library is open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8am to 4pm on Fridays. Students can borrow from a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books, read subject journals and use the computers. We have plenty of comfy seating and desk space where students can read and work quietly. You can also search for books and reserve them using our library catalogue Search the Library’s Book Database.

Stan Lee Excelsior Award starts in January and students from all year groups will have the chance to read the best graphic novels and manga published in 2018.

Online registration for places will open in the last week of January. Places are limited so interested students much keep an eye on assembly notices.
Camp Hill Boys recently hosted two fantastic authors. The Guardian journalist and author, Emma John, spoke to our year 9, 10 and 11 students about her fascinating career in sports journalism and her obsession with cricket! Balal Stitan in year 12 did a fantastic job of chairing the Q&A.
Chris Bradford put on his action packed show for our year 7s and 8s and we were also delighted to be joined by students from other local schools. A handful of lucky students were even given some expert bodyguard training. We look forward to seeing Chris again when he visits us in March 2020!
