Welcome to the Library at Southam College

At Southam College reading matters to all of us and reading is promoted and encouraged throughout the school.

Our College Library is a busy hub of learning at the heart of the school.  Resources include an extensive range of fiction books to suit all tastes, ages and abilities, non-fiction books and study guides.  There are also 15 networked computers with internet access and a black and white printer for students to use.  There is a stationery shop in the library which stocks a wide range of stationery to ensure that all students have the necessary equipment for school.

The aims of the library are to promote reading for pleasure in order to support our pupil’s literacy development, and to provide relevant and appropriate study materials to support teaching and learning from Key Stage 3 right up to sixth form.

Students are encouraged to read a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction titles, to participate in library events, and to influence the character of the library with reviews and suggestions.

The library is open from 8.30am every morning and at break and lunch time for students to browse, exchange books, read and complete home learning.


A quick introduction to ePlatform! 

All of our students at Southam College now have free access to 1500+ eBooks and 900+ audiobooks via ePlatform! Students can access ePlatform from any electronic device at home or within school. Whilst nothing replaces traditional reading, we have found that reading from an electronic device can encourage both reluctant readers and those who face barriers to reading. 

Students will be able to use their own devices to listen to audiobooks in their library lessons, please bring in your own headphones!

ePlatform is an excellent resource that supplements and extends our physical book collection. All eBooks/audiobooks have a two-week loan limit and students can borrow two titles at a time. Students can return their eBooks/audiobooks early if they desire and when their loan has expired, their eBooks/audiobooks will automatically return.
