The Emery Library, located in the heart of the College is an invaluable learning space for Ratcliffe students and a creative teaching space for many of our practitioners. With help from donors, we would like to transform this traditional Library setting into a purpose-built educational hub, benefitting from contemporary furniture, reading booths and modern-edge technology to help our students thrive and excel in their studies for years to come.
New library floor plan:
The importance of reading is paramount to every students’ education at Ratcliffe. Reading widens vocabulary and develops a student’s breadth of general and cultural knowledge, with improved comprehension and analysis skills in all subjects of the curriculum. With a new, inspiring and creative working space for our students, we can continue to support their educational journey, while embedding a natural reading culture across the College.
We hope that you will join us in making this vision a reality, to open in September 2024. Your generosity will help us create a space that will inspire our students for generations to come.
