The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is open at lunchtime and after school for students to borrow, return, request and read books.
There is a weekly book group (Thursday 8.05 - 8.20am).
We also have a wide selection of DVDs and Audio Books for loan and newspapers and magazines to read. We have recently established an eBook facility. Board games are popular at social times too and it's a fantastic place to come and meet new friends.
There are ample computers and headphones for students to use to complete their schoolwork and home learning and access to a printer is provided.
The LRC welcomes students as helpers and we are delighted to offer the chance for Duke of Edinburgh candidates to complete their service to the community with us.
There is a weekly book group who meet to discuss all things literary and take part in games and activities associated with books. We invite authors, poets and illustrators into school and arrange trips out to other libraries and run an annual trip to the Warner Bros Studios (Harry Potter World). We celebrate World Book Day and Night and we shadow literary award schemes.
Year 7 students all undergo an induction programme to teach them how to use the LRC and to showcase our resources.
We pride ourselves on our service and on the safe space we offer to students who might need a quiet facility.
