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.
Sophie arrives at the old schoolhouse to spend the summer with her cousins. Brooding Cameron with his scarred hand, strange Lilias with her fear of bones and Piper, who seems just a bit too good to be true. And then there’s her other cousin.

The girl that shouldn’t be there.
