Learning Resource Centre
The LRC may be utilized at break, lunch and after school by students. It is also a popular private study space for 6th Form students.
The LRC offers a wide range of resources and equipment to help enhance lessons.
The LRC currently holds approximately a wide range of reference books. We cover all sorts of topics from the Guinness Book of Records to Shakespeare, Cookery to World War II. Students are welcome to come into the LRC to use any of the reference material.
The LRC has 4 computers. During the day, these are available to 6th Form students for private study. Other students may use the computers on a first come, first served basis at break, lunch and after school.
For September 2022, we are delighted to be able to reopen the LRC as a space for students to use after-school do their homework. Students might not have anywhere suitable at home in which to study, may wish to utilise the reference materials on offer, or may simply prefer to study at school. All are welcome ! The LRC is open from 3pm - 4.30pm Monday - Thursday. Mr Hill will be on hand to assist any students who need assistance with the home learning set.
Printing and Photocopying
The dedicated student printer is located in the LRC. Students may print out work at break, lunch and after school and are given a £2 free 'print allowance' to allow them to do this. A simple print release station in the LRC enables students to send their own jobs to print, and have them charged to their account.
Due to issues of cost, students will only be allowed to print in black and white. Once the allowance is exhausted, extra copies must be purchased by parents via the squidcard cashless payment system. Used wisely, we do not anticipate that students should need to purchase any extra copies. I would encourage you to have a conversation with your child however about the importance of not wasting their allowance.
In giving them access to the print release station, students are being trusted to operate school equipment in a mature way. Misuse of any of the equipment will be managed in line with the School’s Rewards and Consequences Policy.
