Mrs Dring and Miss Szczerbinska, the Librarians at Ripon Grammar School, manage two areas to support the highest possible standards in education by providing reliable information resources, delivering information literacy skills and, of course, promoting and encouraging reading for pleasure.
As well as supporting lessons in the library, staff also organise a host of activities and competitions, ensuring the library is a vibrant place that encourages students to get involved. The librarians are there to help students who need assistance in searching for, or using, any of the library resources.
The main Library aims to be the vibrant hub of the school. It is a well-used, whole school resource.
Here is a news report about the visit from author Robyn Stevens last year: http://www.ripongrammar.co.uk/news/boarding-school-murder-mystery-author-will-help-students-turn-detective-436/
“I loved reading week a lot! Because it introduced me to lot of new types of reading and different subjects!”
“Reading week was a chance to read genres of books I have never tried just to give them a go.
Students working towards their EPQ said:
“Thank you, these are all so unbelievably helpful - I was getting slightly lost when it came to different sources for my EPQ so this is brilliant!!”
“All of these websites have been really helpful. I feel like it's given me a bit of a direction. Thank you so much for the help.”
