additional activities for our students
Our latest fundraising project is to furnish our school with a fit-for-purpose Library space.
At Undershaw we are firm in the view that a school that reads together, stays together. And to that end, we are refurbishing our library. Our English curriculum is broad and evolving – but one thing that never changes is our love of books and the skill of reading, not just for academic attainment but as a source of pleasure, comfort, and substance that will enrich our lives.
Books transcend every cornerstone of our education, development, and help us nurture a lifelong love of learning. Literacy is the bedrock upon which discovery and a quest for learning are built. A school is no different. Help us build our library as a place of solace, comfort and reflection, as well as a landscape of excitement, awe and wonder.
