The Learning Resource Centre

The Learning Resource Centre is a bright, attractive room and we are fortunate to have an excellent and well stocked school library.

Students have access to 30 computers (15 pcs and 15 laptops) and 5 iPads linked to the internet all day both before and after school.

Students in year 7 have an induction course to familiarise them with the Learning Resource Centre and to encourage good reading habits.  All students are offered the opportunity to work as junior librarians.
