We are seeking to appoint a versatile and enthusiastic Librarian (term-time only) to work as part of our Library Services team from September 2022. The successful candidate will have a passion for scholarship and academic research, a love of reading and literature, and a commitment to working with ambitious and engaged students to help them achieve their potential.

Library Services at Bury Grammar School comprises of three separate libraries with a combined stock of over 40,000 resources. We are thrilled to be opening a new Primary Library in September 2022 – this brings together three previously separate libraries and will serve co-educational pupils from Kindergarten to Year 6. The Senior Schools are served by two libraries: a Library in the Girls’ Senior School and a Learning Resource Centre in the Boys’ Senior School. Additional Library facilities will also be provided for our Sixth Form students as part of the new ‘Court House’ development. Each of the libraries is well stocked with traditional printed resources and an increasing range of digital services including audiobooks and e-books. The library uses SharePoint to promote a growing collection of digital resources which includes popular journals and archive and database subscriptions such as JSTOR. Our libraries are used extensively for study and research throughout the day and are a popular destination for pupils at break and lunchtimes.

The library is also host to regular lunchtime clubs and activities that support reading for pleasure, reading for knowledge, and general wellbeing. Current events include the shadowing of the Yoto Carnegie Medal as well as a lively programme of activities to support our own ‘in house’ Book Award. The School Librarians work closely with the English Faculty to nurture a love of reading throughout the school and seek to promote resources that reflect topical events throughout the year.

As a member of the Library Services team you will be responsible for the acquisition, organisation, dissemination and exploitation of resources appropriate to the learning needs of the full age and ability range within the School.

Bury Grammar School is an independent day school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18.
