No ordinary library!
Our Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is more than a library, it provides a study area for students and teachers giving them access to a growing catalogue of print and electronic resources allowing them to achieve independent learning .
The LRC is open from 8.15am through to 4pm Monday to Friday and is always fully staffed. This includes break, lunchtimes and from 3pm to 4pm after school where students can catch up with homework or relax and catch up on their reading.
Outside of school our database of books, websites and eBooks are available through our remote Eclipse database and MLS app.
To encourage reading for pleasure we celebrate reading through Accelerated Reader where students can read a book followed by a quiz and then move through levels accelerating their reading. Students are awarded certificates and prizes accordingly. We are very lucky to be sponsored by Montem Leisure Centre in association with Absolutely Leisure.
Other initiatives include:
DEAR (Drop Everything And Read)
Spot prizes for students who are reading outside of lessons
Book Buzz, free books for all year 7 students
And many other in incentives to encourage reading for pleasure.
