The Library is staffed by Ms Anna France and a team of dedicated student librarians who assist at intervals and lunch times. The Library is open throughout the school day, including all break times. 

Our Vision

The Queen’s High School Library will:

  • support the teaching and learning needs of the Queen’s High School community
  • support students in the pursuit of their individual reading and information needs, and assist them in developing life long learning skills
  • provide access to appropriate resources that support the curriculum and meet the needs and interests of library users of all ages, abilities and background.

Further details are contained in the Library's Strategic Plan.
