When can I use the Learning Resources Centre (LRC)?

Opening times will be Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.00pm, open all day including break and lunch.
Sixth Formers are free to use the library at anytime during free study periods. If a class has been booked in, you will not be able to study here during that time. Please check the booking sheet on the library desk.
 

What does the Centre have to offer me?

The LRC is a service, not just a place to be. You can use the library to sit and do your homework, research or to sit and read quietly.
