The library or LRC (Learning Resource Centre) as it is known, is a large and airy two floor space which provides students with library and equipment resources as well as an IT learning facility.
There are approximately 60 PCs with provision for printing and copying for coursework and homework. The centre allows students to develop and improve their independent research and learning skills outside of the classroom.
Staff also use the bank of PCs to teach their classes and complete coursework and assessments should the need arise.
Students can use the space for logging onto the Reading Cloud and for book loans as well as for participating in reading groups, interventions and support groups or as volunteer Reading Ambassadors.
The LRC is not a space for social, leisure or recreational use but is intended as a positive working environment for research, study and reading. Students are not allowed to eat or drink in the LRC, nor are they allowed to use the computer facilities for playing games, personal emailing or internet surfing.

- All books borrowed from the LRC must be checked out at the librarian’s desk. Booked are normally loaned for two weeks, but can renewed where necessary.
- Books should be returned or renewed on time—all books issued to the borrower remain their responsibility until they are returned on the computer system.
- There are no fines for overdue books, please ensure your child returns any books belonging to the LRC, no matter how late they are. However, if a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, the person it is issued to will be responsible for replacing the book or paying a £5.00 charge for its replacement.
