Ofsted will be inspecting Pleckgate on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th March 2023.

Pleckgate pupils have given the newly refurbished library the thumbs up!

Over the summer, the library has undergone extensive work to give it a major facelift.

There are new shelves, new tables, new chairs and new books which has made it a friendlier and more modern environment for learning and reading.

Librarian Mrs Hanson said: “It’s absolutely amazing. We have only just opened and the reaction from the pupils has all been positive, everyone wants to come in and have a look around. It’s the heart of the school.”

English teacher Mrs Jackson said: “All the pupils are excited to use the new library. There are new books which means there is something for everyone. It will encourage reading and studying.”

Imaan said: “I like it, it’s different and classy.”

Sumayya said: “It’s the first time I have been in and I like it. It’s more spacious than the other library.”

The Year 11 Prefect Librarians believe they now have the perfect job.

Safiyah said: “It makes our job a lot easier. We have to scan, put books away but also make sure people are respectful. The new layout helps us do this.”
