"There are regular opportunities for students to read simply for pleasure in the school day as part of the Learning Resource Centre's range of programmes."

LRC Users

All the pupils in the school are automatically members of the LRC and are included on our automated library issue system within a fortnight of joining.

The same applies to all adults within the school – teaching and support staff, PGCE students – and our governors.

The LRC is used:

  • for English library lessons including book changing sessions, work on reading logs, looking at book or author recommendations, looking at book or author websites
  • for various departments to come and research projects
  • for meetings such as School Council or Governors
  • for resource booking
  • for organising topic boxes and as a calm place to work, study, research, revise or try out ideas on the library staff
