The Library is a hub within the school that offers support to all members of the UHC community in a variety of ways. We pride ourselves in being able to maintain a current and dynamic Fiction collection ofall genres and levels, cating for a wide variety of readers. We are also involved in all areas of the curriculum and provide Non-Fiction material in published and digital form for subjects within the school.
Our Librarian is Mrs Bloomfield, the Library Assistant is Mrs Scrivener and the Teacher with Library Responsibilities is Mrs Mulholland.
Opening Hours for the Library are 7.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Students are welcome to come into the Library during opening hours, including interval and lunchtime. After school we host a Homework Club that has teacher supervision. Students can either use the resources in the Library to work independently or have the support of specialist teachers to complete homework or prepare for assessments.
Digital Resources in the Library
While we encourage reading for both research and pleasure, we also offer digital resources for student use. See Mrs B at the Library desk for further information on any of the following.
- Chromebooks that can be issued for use in the Library
- UHCLibrary Facebook page. Like us for updates on new books, competitions and upcoming events
- Wheelers e-Platform for access to over 1200 digital Fiction titles you can read anywhere, on any device
Supporting the School Community
Another way in which we support the school community is to attend sports and cultural events that are important to our students. We also host many events throughout the year that encourage UHC students to be active members, both within their school, and wider communities. One example of this is Pink Shirt Day. This is an anti-bullying campaign and every year, in conjunction with UHC's GR8M8's student mentoring programme, this pink themed lunch is created by the senior students for their Year 9 gr8m8's.
