The purpose-built VSA Secondary Library is at the heart of learning in our school, and situated at it epicentre, with a stunning view over Aberdeen Harbour. All students’ benefit from our extensive collection of books that cover every area of the curriculum. We also have a series of databases, periodicals, magazines and multi-media tools, so that students can broaden their conduct their investigations using a diverse range of sources.
In our school we see the library as working very much in partnership with teachers, and the students work with the staff in the library to develop key research skills that they will use in their units of inquiry and major pieces of work, most notably the personal project and the extended essay.
We run a number of schemes to develop student ownership of the library, such as our student ambassador schemes and our promotional reading events.
We are committed to bilingualism and we have large collections both in English and Chinese.
