Library and Resources Centre


Our Resources include: over 19,000 books, resource packs, periodicals and magazines.

The main categories for the books are:
Fiction, Non-Fiction, Local Collection, Classic Books, Reference and staff development books.
The Resources Centre holds the KS4 and adult fiction stock, the classic fiction, local collection and all of the main non-fiction, staff and reference books.

We have 36 computers with a printer/photocopier/scanner for students to use, (2p for A4 and 4p for A3 black and white prints, 10p and 20p for colour printing) which are available for students to use in throughout the college day, in their free time before and after college, as well as at break and lunchtimes.
Students also have access (through Frog, from any PC in the College) to search the Library catalogue, where they can search for educational resources and websites to support their studies and their own reading for pleasure.

Reading Club- Wednesday breaktime in the Resources Centre (All Year Groups)

Homework Club - Get help with your homework- 3-4pm every Everyday

Playing games is only allowed before and after college, not at break and lunchtimes as computers will be needed for students to complete their work.

Fiction books for the KS3 are shelved in the Hub Library, which is in the centre of the Avenue along with some general interest non-fiction, newspapers and magazines.

Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students have one tutor reading session in the Hub.

Year 7, 8 and 9 English groups have one timetabled reading lesson in the library and or Resources Centre per a fortnight.

Books can be issued and returned to either the Resources Centre or the Hub Library.
