Please Note - This is an additional fundraising page, launched at the request of members of the community who missed the opportunity to donate in the first round of the project (See Any funds raised will go towards the £1775 raised previously.

In early 2020, the much-loved librarian of South Wirral High School, Jane Edwards, passed away. In Jane's memory, we want to renovate and relaunch the school library - providing a warm and welcoming space. A fitting legacy for a woman who always found time for every student.

We want to create a space that can help promote literacy across the school, promote a love of reading, and become an area used not just in lessons, but also as a social area through the day. This will include a more diverse range of books including those from BAME authors, an LGBTQ+ section and local history. We would also create a university-style research area with upgraded ICT facilities and one-to-one student guidance.

The project will be in collaboration with a student 'literacy leaders' group, with faculty representatives who can take the project in the direction the students want, making a sustainable future for the library.
