The Library

The School Library is located in Round Square and consists of four separate rooms:

The function of the Main Library is to support the academic curriculum.  It houses the bulk of the Non-Fiction stock and includes the Reference Section as well as two specialist art collections funded by bequests from Joy McKessack and Lord Beaumont.

Overlooking the Main Library is the Reading Loft which is furnished with study booths for Year 13 private study.

The Silence Room contains fiction, biographies, autobiographies, CDs and DVDs. Both private study and class work take place here.

The Warden’s Room houses the School Archive, local history books and books from the personal libraries of Kurt Hahn and Erich Meissner.

Opening Times

The Library is open during class contact times and is also open to Year 13 during Second Prep in the evening.

Book Shop

This is situated in the Silence Room and is open every Wednesday during term time at break and lunchtime. Students and staff can purchase a wide range of new Fiction and Non-Fiction titles. Revision guides, critical studies and reference books are also available.

External Users

The resources of the Library are primarily available to students and staff of the Gordonstoun Schools but requests from external users to consult the stock on a reference basis may be made to the Principal.
