Resources

The Learning Resource Centre is built on two levels and the upper mezzanine is for Sixth Form use only. This area consists of two wings allowing plenty of space for students to work individually. The LRC has over 15,000 resources to help students with their studies. Students can access newspapers, magazines, DVDs and enjoy a wide range of fictional material. The centre is open between 8.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, and Friday 8.30am to 4pm. There are 54 PCs on the upper floor and access to WiFi for students who wish to bring their own laptops and devices.  Students are actively encouraged to use laptops, tablets and phones for educational purposes. Teachers make learning resources available digitally and all homeworks are set online. Students get Microsoft Office for free and can print wirelessly to any printer in the school.

The Sixth Form has a great range of facilities: a large common room, their own area of the canteen plus a snack bar, dedicated working area, with space for charging electronic devices and quiet work rooms.

We have fantastic sporting facilities as well as the Sports Centre, with access to a well-equipped gym, sports hall, a dance studio and indoor courts, all available for students to use. We also have extensive outdoor space providing tennis and netball courts, football, rugby and cricket pitches.

We are very proud of our facilities throughout the school, from 3D printers to ceramic kilns, but we are also continually looking to see how they could be improved through discussions with students and parents.
