Global learning library collections

Due to the closure of Forest Lodge Education Centre, the Global Learning Library can no longer be kept together as one large collection. We are proposing that we create a 'virtual' global learning library across the city.

Further information

Judgemeadow College has kindly offered to take some of the collections, however we are looking for homes for book collections focused at primary schools as well as resource boxes which are regularly used. 

We would like to offer the following collections to schools. The 'virtual' collections will be available for colleagues to keep at their own schools but would be expected to share the resources with other schools as and when needed, especially the resource boxes. 

If you would like to be considered to take one or more of the collections please email with your name, school and which collection/s you would like.  Please email no later than the end of Friday 7 December 2018. 

You will be contacted the following week to confirm the collections and the date which they can be collected from Forest Lodge Education Centre. Unfortunately we can not offer delivery of resources.

If you have any questions please email Clare Plumb at

Please note some collections have already been allocated, hence missing photos, some collections have more than one photo.
