By instilling a passion for reading and teaching the skills needed for becoming a ‘digital student’, the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) supports the School’s development of the whole child.
The LRC has an extensive collection of fiction and non-fiction material, covering and supporting all subject areas, plus access to a number of academic databases (e.g. JSTOR and Elsevier). We actively encourage reading for pleasure and run regular workshops on advanced researching and internet navigation.
Working alongside the Academic Support Centre, the LRC helps students who are struggling with their studies. We offer scheduled one-to-one advice, drop-in sessions, and Wednesday Late Night Learning lessons.
As well as being a hub for academic life, the LRC is a social space too – a place where pupils can chat and take time to reflect on each day’s events. In addition, the LRC is the spiritual home of the Debate Society and Politics Club.
