Learning Resource Centre

The Learning Resource Centre (Leyes Lane)

The Learning Resource Centre is very popular among the students.  Open daily at 8am, students have access before registration, during breaks and at lunch time.  During lesson time, it is used for individual and group research. 

The LRC houses over 9,000 quality, relevant and up to date books supporting all areas of the curriculum, hobbies and leisure interests and a wide selection of fiction titles.  Resources available comprise print and online; books, popular magazines, national and local newspapers and DVDs.  Computers are available with print and photocopying facilities.

New students are given an induction to help them to locate and use the resources.  The LRC is staffed by a qualified librarian, two Learning Resource Assistants and student librarians.

Library Events

We hold book events, author visits and participate in local and national ones like Warwickshire Secondary School Book Award, Carnegie shadowing, kids Lit Quiz, World Book Day and other literary activities to promote reading and library use throughout the year.  There are also the book, chess and scrabble clubs.  These are always enjoyable, so look out for announcements and come along if you can. Suggestions for new activities are always welcome.
