The Study Zone is a silent area for self-study. Staff and students are welcome to use the PCs for work, and to browse our non-fiction collections, or simply to work in silence at the desks in the zone.

Students are more than welcome to approach any of our Library Officers for assistance, especially in areas related to research such as referencing, citations, or even looking up reference materials for a project. 


The non-fiction collection in the Senior Library is split into three main areas: general non-fiction, Sixth Form collections, and Reading for Edge.

Sixth Form Collections (Subject Pods)

The four subject pods in the Study Zone collect books specific to the Sixth Form curriculums for both IB and A-Levels.

Reading For Edge Collection

The Reading For Edge collection contains books that go beyond the curriculum, and are categorized according to subjects students may wish to pursue at university. The books are located in the Collaborative Zone of the library. See the RFE reading list here.

Additional special collections

Additional special collections include our travel guides section, careers books (which include university guide books, SAT and other exam preparation books, as well as general career guidance books), and the Singapore and South East Asian collection.
