Hungerhill School

The Library

Welcome to the Hungerhill School library!

Hungerhill Library, the mother tree of our school, where all our students blossom like unique flowers. A spontaneous space, full of diversity and new things that are yet to be discovered. Over 15,000 resources to get lost in, including books, DVDs and computers. All serving a purpose. But the real question is, what is your purpose?

Find out now in Hungerhill Library, where you can either loose yourself in the spectacular silence of the quiet corner or find your future self with the help of our lovely library leaders.

We are open:

Before school - 8:00 - 8:35  Monday to Friday

Morning break - 10:55 - 11:10  Monday - Friday

Lunchtimes - 12:10 - 13:10  Monday - Friday except Thursday

Home Learning Club:

Every Day at 15:10 - 16:00

For those who wish to strive to their very best, for those who don’t stand for the minimum or for those who just need a little help, the library homework club is open from 15:10 till 16:00. All students are welcome to attend this club, to use the library facilities to support their work or to receive help and support with their home learning from our home learning team.

Stationery Shop

The Library does not sell stationery during lesson times, but this can be purchased at all other times of the day. The shop stocks all equipment required for lessons. Items are sold at cost with no profit being made.

Code of Conduct

The Library is a quiet place at all times!

To ensure you enjoy using the Library we ask that you:

  • treat others as you would like to be treated
  • move around the Library in a quiet and sensible manner
  • respect staff and other users
  • do not eat or drink
  • do not wear outdoor coats
  • do not share Library membership cards or computer passwords
  • ask a member of the Library staff if you want to use a computer BEFORE logging on
  • leave quietly when asked.

 Please note: students must not use the Library unsupervised at ANY TIME.


To become a member of the library, students require a permission letter from Library staff to be signed by a parent/carer and returned. On receipt of this letter, students are then enrolled onto the Library system and issued with a membership card.

In Year 7, students are given all this information as part of their Library lessons, which they have once a fortnight throughout the year. They are also given a Library Booklet, which explains everything about the Library. If a new student starts at Hungerhill School after Year 7, they will need to visit the Library during form time, break time, or lunch to collect a letter and booklet and follow the same process.
