Library Resources Centre

The LRC aims to:

  1. Support by helping pupils to develop the skills to access information efficiently and effectively.
  2. Promote by encouraging reading for pleasure by providing a broad range of fiction and non-fiction, of high quality.
  3. Respond by providing a proactive and responsive service tailored to the needs of pupils, staff and curriculum areas.

The LRC is open throughout the school day, including often before and after school as well as during break and lunchtimes. This is so that students can have extensive access to the LRC in order to complete work or read.
The LRC very well used during lesson time and is regularly booked for Accelerated Reader lessons. All Year 7 and 8 students take part in the Accelerated Reader programme during their English lessons, which is designed to track and monitor students’ reading levels. The LRC is usually available to 6th form students for independent study throughout the school day too.
Accommodation and Resources:
The LRC is a welcoming and attractive place to learn as well as relax. It is also a flexible space as it can accommodate whole classes of students as well as smaller groups and sole learners. There is space for whole classes of students to work at any one time as well as 15 computer workstations and a printer/ photocopier. There are also two soft seating areas to encourage reading for pleasure.
The LRC aims to provide easy access to up-to-date and high quality resources. This is essential for supporting students in their learning across the Academy. The LRC currently houses a collection of approximately 7,000 books.
A broad range of reading materials is available in order to cater for a variety of different student ages, abilities and interests. It is important to note that all resources give a positive, balanced coverage of cultural, religious and political issues without undue extremism.  
Several high-quality journals are also available for staff and students to use as well as a range of magazines, which are recreational or curriculum relevant. First News is a newspaper for young adults, which is available weekly.
A comprehensive careers library is also available, which contains information and guidance about careers as well as college/university prospectuses.
Book Loans
KS3 students are allowed to borrow up to 3 books for 3 weeks. KS4 and KS5 students are allowed to borrow up to 5 books for 3 weeks. Protocols are in place for dealing with overdue books. Any books that are lost or damaged, on borrower’s first offence, then no charge will be made. Thereafter, borrowers will be asked to pay for only half the price of the book.

The LRC is managed by Ms C. Warren, who works in the mornings and has a wealth of knowledge, experience and qualifications that can support students and staff effectively. We also have on staff a Learning Resources Assistant as well as a team of Junior Librarians.

If you would like any general advice on reading and literacy or maybe would like some book recommendations, please do not hesitate to contact us and we would be happy to help.
