Welcome to our Learning Resource Centre page

 

The LRC is the real hub of the school; it is a busy and lively place outside lesson time and a quiet study area during lessons. 

It is well stocked and well organised and although students are encouraged to be independent learners there is always someone on hand to help.

We believe reading is a huge part of students educational and emotional development and we are passionate about the LRC being a place that all students are welcome to visit as regularly and as often as possible. All students are welcome to use the LRC before and after school and during break and lunchtimes.

Opening Times

Monday to Thursday: 8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.

Friday:  8.00 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.

World Book Day  March 3rd, 2022

We celebrated World Book Day in the LRC with our pupils at last!

 

There was a buzz in the LRC as we raised money for Book Aid International at break time with our cake sale, ran activities based on our featured book 'Around the World in 80 Days' by Jules Verne and finished the day with out annual World Book Day Quiz.

 

The quiz was hotly contested with ten teams taking part.  Our winning team 'reading rogues' won by one point!  This was an incredible win as they were down by one member!

Try out the activities on the WBD website. for more book related fun.

Pupil Librarians

Pupil Librarians are very important in the daily running of the Learning Resource Centre. They work in the Learning Resource Centre before school, during break and at lunchtimes, helping with issuing books and assisting lower school students to make appropriate and informed book choices.  They also assist in keeping the LRC organised and tidy.   

Every pupil, from Year 9 onwards, has the opportunity to apply to become a Pupil Librarian. 

Applications open every September.  If you are thinking of applying, take a look at the Job Description and Application Form.
