The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) provides a welcoming, inclusive learning environment actively supporting teaching and learning within the school with a key focus on Literacy and Oracy.
It achieves this through the provision of many thousands of books, magazines, vetted website references and specific resource packs. There are computers with internet and printing facilities providing a valuable tool for research, information literacy and homework. Displays and activities change regularly reflecting the life of the school as well as National and International events.
The centre hosts and actively supports a variety of clubs and lessons during the school week as well as fostering a love of reading through its Library Service (physical and digital) and through its NatterReads reading group. Suggested fiction reading lists by year group are available to view under the parents tab. Other reading lists, e.g. well-being, are also available.
Students earn extra stamps and house points for borrowing, returning and recommending books as well as for taking part in activities/events. Loans must be returned on time and in good condition – see LRC charging policy.
The LRC is a phone-free zone.
The LRC is open from 8.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and from 8.00am to 3.30pm on Friday.
