Formerly the school hall, the Learning Resource Centre is a welcoming environment that encourages reading, research & study.
This inviting space houses a fantastic range of fiction and non-fiction books, daily newspapers, journals and magazines. The LRC can accommodate approximately 200 students: with dedicated areas for reading and sixth form quiet study; three computer suites and school stationery shop. It also provides a focal point for showcasing students’ learning achievements through regular displays and small exhibitions.
The LRC is used for exams and as such will occasionally be unavailable for general use. When closed we will endeavour to arrange a pop-up LRC elsewhere.
Sixth form students have a dedicated space for quiet study throughout the school day, when they are not in lessons, with computers, Key Stage 5 fiction and non-fiction books to support their learning.
