Princethorpe College shortlisted for library award

A COLLEGE library has been recognised for its resourcefulness and ability to inspire its users.

Princethorpe College is one of six secondary schools to make the shortlist for the School Library Association’s 2017 Inspiration Award.

The award – designed to reward innovation and creativity – is given to school libraries which show inspiration and resourcefulness in its design and use.

The college welcomed SLA judges Dawn Woods and Geoff Dubber to inspect and evaluate its Sixth Form Learning Resource Centre. The judges met the school’s librarian Celia Scott, staff and students to discuss the impact of the centre on teaching and learning.

Celia said: “Much consideration went into the design and layout of the Resource Centre at Princethorpe. Our aim was to create a place where young people would want to learn, and have the environment and resources to support them.

“We believe our dedicated Sixth Form Learning Resource facility makes a difference to the learning lives of our students and are delighted that the judges do too.”

The winning school will be chosen on October 2 during an awards ceremony in Covent Garden, London. All of the shortlisted schools will have the chance to showcase their school library designs before the final decision is made.
