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.

From June 7th, the LRC will open to specifc year groups at brunch and before and after school.

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