The Learning Resource Centre
At Temple Moor High school, we actively promote reading for pleasure and the advantages and opportunities that a lifelong love of literature creates. In order to support and encourage our students to read for enjoyment, we offer a wide and diverse range of student resources, events and extra-curricular activities through our Library.
We ensure all students have access to quality, age-appropriate fiction, (including new releases) including graphic novels, comics, magazines and newspapers. Additionally, we provide non-fiction texts that support our School Curriculum and independent research. The LRC has 25 computers for students to use for further study. Revision guides are also available, alongside flashcards and stationery to help students create their own resources.
Please check our opening times for when your child can access the LRC.
Student Librarian Scheme
Our TMHS Librarian Scheme is a popular and thriving initiative that allows our students to take an active role in shaping their School Library. We selected a team of 15 students from over 40 applications, who now take responsibility for running our Library throughout the school week. This initiative enables our students to learn key skills, practice teamwork and earn rewards whilst contributing to school life. Applications will open again in September for our 2019/2020 Team.
World Book Day
“The library has such a fantastic atmosphere today!”- Y7 student
On Thursday, 7 March 2019, TMHS celebrated World Book Day with exciting events taking place across the school.
Throughout the school day, staff read thrilling instalments of the Roald Dahl’s ‘The Landlady’, with each cliffhanger leaving our students eager for their next lesson (and chapter!).
During break and lunch, our Library transformed into a bustling book fair. With every bargain purchase, our students were able to enjoy a free book-themed cake made by our Enterprise Group and we were able to raise £70 towards for our School Library!
KS3 Book Club
Our KS3 Book Club takes place every Wednesday from 3:00 – 3:30 pm in the Library. As well as sharing and discussing books, we play literary themed games and compete in quizzes and debates. We have recently finished reading and reviewing the shortlist for the Leeds Book Awards and we will be meeting the famous authors at the official ceremony in May.
