The upstairs Sixth Form work area of the LRC (Learning Resources Centre) has been refurbished over the summer holidays. The 44 computers and desks were replaced and a further 12 workspaces were created for students to use their own devices.

It is a popular area for students to study in and they have the benefit of access to a high quality photocopier/printer as well as online access for many subscription sites to help them with their research.
