Library News & Events

The SCWA Library is a fun and busy place to hang out.   With themed displays and comfy armchairs it’s a great place to ‘lose yourself’ in a book.  There are competitions to enter, rewards to be won and achievements to celebrate.  

Our bank of computers provide students with the opportunity to keep up with current affairs or research topics for homework and revision.




Accelerated Reader

Here at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy we run a reading programme called Accelerated Reader. This is an on-line program that is available to all Year 7&8 classes. Students start by taking an on-line ’Star Reading Test’, which then gives a ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development), and also indicates a reading age for the student. Library book stock has been colour coded to match zonal ranges. Students can then choose books according to their ZPD with ease – there are currently 3,735 books available in the AR section to which we are constantly adding.

Our library has a wealth of revision materials – click here for further details. The library is open to students every break and lunchtime.
