The many libraries and reading-rooms open to boys include:

  • School Library, an attractive, well-resourced area offering a wide range of information under the full-time supervision of a team of librarians. The comprehensive stock of books, CD ROMs, cassettes and CDs, together with a network of PCs, meets not only the academic needs of pupils, but also encourages their leisure reading and listening.
  • Departmental libraries for art, classics, geography, history, mathematics, and music, most of them situated close to the department’s schoolrooms. They have stock which is more specialized and aimed mainly at older boys.
  • College Library, an outstanding collection of rare books and manuscripts together with the archives of the college. This is a working library open throughout the year and used by visiting scholars. Introduced to this library in their first year, boys visit for teaching sessions and are encouraged to use it for independent study.
