Learning Resource Centre
The Senior LRC is an exciting place to be, and is home to six networked computers, a range of non-fiction resources, a large fiction section and a growing Careers Library, including a full range of University Prospectuses alongside books giving advice about pre and post 16 choices, gap years, entry to Universities abroad and guides on writing the best personal statement!
There are comfortable chairs and sofas, providing the ideal space to read the daily newspaper, a variety of magazines or one of the interesting books from the Reference section of the LRC.
Events in the Senior LRC include the ‘Book Buzz Breakfast’, the annual Inter-House Book Quiz and Carnegie Shadowing, where a group of pupils follow the work of the judges of the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Children’s Literature by reading the shortlisted books, posting reviews of the books on the national website and discussing the positives and/or negatives of each book with the LRC Manager and the English Department.
Both the Senior and Junior LRCs use Eclipse.net from Microlibrarian Systems as a management tool. Access to the current LRC catalogue, pupil book reviews and the LRC homepage is available by following this link.
