librariansAt Trinity School we have two well-resourced libraries: the Chapman Library (in lower school) and the Carliol Library (in the Sixth Form building)

In the library you will find not only books, resources and computers but also three experienced librarians who share a love of books and reading . We are information specialists and experts in locating the different types of information that you may need for your study and personal interests.

The librarians believe that reading for pleasure is one of the best way to relax and de-stress. Reading lets you experience different worlds and ideas and continuing to read for pleasure into your teenage years and beyond is one of the few things that has been proven to help you develop to reach your full potential.

Why not pop in to the library today?
