Learning at TLA


Library (1)

At TLA one of our main school priorities is to develop reading skills and promote a love of reading for pleasure. As part of many exciting actions to promote reading, investment has been given to rejuvenate our library and rehome it to a bigger space.

Our library is a special place- Lamptey’s Library, named after a former member of the TLA family- Hannah Lamptey. Hannah was an English teacher and created the original Secondary library at TLA. Her passion was literature, and her ambition was to inspire all children to have a love of reading in East Leeds. We are continuing this journey by creating our new library that will be used for years 5-11.

The library offers a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books for all age groups and will be used for a space for quiet reflection and a place to come and “get caught up” in a book. The library will also be open at lunchtimes for students to come and enjoy the reading materials and some games and writing competitions.

On 25th March 2022, we will be opening our library officially and we will be working further with Leeds United on promotion of reading and fundraising for new books. A special guest will be joining us to mark the occasion and work with the students at TLA to make the library a place where all students can explore the joy of reading.
