The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is a bright, safe and welcoming learning environment for all students in which we aim to provide a positive influence, through support and guidance, to ensure that every student can access the necessary resources to enable them to achieve their full potential and to ultimately reach their goals.

The LRC provides an opportunity for students to read, research or study using the varied selection of stimulating and enriching books which can also be borrowed for personal reading at home. We provide students with access to computers to support their independent studies and the completion of online homework tasks. For staff, the LRC can provide resources to support their students’ learning as well as their own personal reading.

The Accelerated Reader section of the LRC hosts exciting and interesting books which are labelled with reading age codes to enable all students to manage their own progression in reading and for this progress to be tracked against national data.

The Learning Resource Centre Manager actively promotes a lifelong love of reading with the students through various promotions held within the academy to encourage students to read and by promoting reading schemes, purchasing new book titles and by actively taking an interest in what the students are currently reading and suggesting other titles they may like to read.


The LRC also hosts a variety of after school enrichment activities which students can join in:

Monday – Helping the community
Wednesday – Homework club
Thursday – Craft club
Friday – Independent study

Students can access the LRC if they have been issued with an LRC pass.

The LRC is open:
Monday – Thursday: 7.45 – 3.30
Friday: 7.45 – 2.30
