Since September 2016, all Key Stage Three students have been lucky enough to have a fortnightly Library lesson as part of the English Curriculum. During this time, students are able to read independently, with a teacher or as a group. We have an extensive catalogue of books across a range of genres and regularly acquire and promote new reads.

Fiction Books


The Fareham Academy Library contains a plethora of exciting and engaging books, many of which accommodate thrilling new worlds just waiting to be explored.

We have a variety of genres in our fiction section of books. These genres include, but are not limited to; Action, Adventure, Crime, Drama, Fantasy, History, Horror, Mystery, Romance, Sci-fi, Thriller.

Non-fiction Books


In the Library, there is a dedicated section which is home to a variety of non-fiction books, many of which relate to subjects taught here at the Academy and are useful revision resources for students of all year groups.


Our non-fiction categories include, but are not limited to; Animals, Arts and Crafts, Biographies, Cooking, General Knowledge, Geography, History, Poetry, Science, Sports and Recreation.

Our Placeholder System

Here at the Academy, we take pride in not only creating a fun and relaxing environment for students to read in, but an organised one as well. When taking a book from a shelf, students are required to put their chosen placeholder in its place to ensure that it is returned to the correct location.

Borrowing Books


Students are able to take books out from the Library by asking either their English teacher or one of the librarians if they find a book they’d like to read at home. Books can be borrowed for up to two weeks at a time, but can be renewed on their due date if students need longer to read them.
