1936 saw contributions and donations subscribing to the building of a school library in the grounds of this private girls school and named after a prime donator as the 'Fawcett Library'.
A large detached building situated upon Castle Hill, inside the school’s grounds. This proved a great asset to the pupils, as they could then study in purpose-built premises, provided with all the appropriate books.
The downstairs consisted of the main library room which was beautifully panelled-out in oak with Victorian style cornice work to the ceiling and upstairs on the first floor were five staff bedrooms and toilet facilities.
Until the building of the library, the Castle Hill section of the Hall grounds had always been ‘out-of-bounds’ to the pupils.
