The Learning Resource Centre

The Learning Resource Centre was officially opened in November 2004 and dedicated to John Acres, a former Deputy Head teacher who sadly passed away in July 2003.

It is a large and extremely busy open-access, multimedia facility at the heart of the school. It offers access to the widest possible choice of resources to support teaching and learning across the curriculum, and contributes to the development of literacy skills by encouraging an interest in wider reading. It is also the hub of our Accelerated Reader programme.

Opening Times
8.30am to 3.30pm, Monday to Friday

Borrowing

Students may borrow books for 3 weeks and DVDs for 2 days. Resources should be returned in good order. If they are lost or damaged you may be asked to pay for a replacement. Please speak to the librarian if there are any problems.

Careers
The library holds general careers information – books, leaflets and website lists, and also prospectuses for colleges, school sixth forms and universities.
