"Primary Aspect"

The Learning Resource Centre has an area dedicated to the promotion of literacy across the curriculum. Here we celebrate and commemorate the various occasions throughout the year by linking the event to various title that are relevant,

As a Sports College we now have a specialist display concentrated on sportsmen and women. Autobiographical literature is particularly popular.

The Aspect is brightly decorated with Artwork that students have produced, some dramatic and extremely eye catching. This enhances the area and gives students a feeling of ownership.

Year 7 students attend the Learning Resource Centre once a fortnight as part of their English lessons. Students read quietly as well as practise study skills using books and the internet.
