The LRC is open to ALL students before and after school and at break and lunchtimes. It is the sixth form study centre during the school day and sixth form prep centre for the boarding community. We welcome students for homework, reading or research with help on hand if needed.
We work with teaching staff to deliver vital information and digital literacy skills which students will need for further education and the workplace, as well as supporting wider reading in their subjects.
The LRC manages the Accelerated Reader programme for Years 7,8 and 9, encouraging students to develop and keep a vital reading habit. Sixth form mentors support those who need encouragement and there are activities to stretch able readers.
We provide a wide range of events and activities to encourage reading for pleasure including inspiring author and poet visits, reading clubs for all ages and school-wide House events and competitions. In offering opportunities beyond the classroom, we enhance our students’ awareness and appreciation of reading and the arts.
