Learning Resource Centre

The Beacon School’s Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is located on the ground floor of the Ashcroft building.  It provides a bright and spacious welcoming environment for individual study, class activities and leisure reading.

The aim of the LRC is to promote reading for pleasure and to support students and teachers with learning across the curriculum.

Opening Hours

The library is open Monday & Thursday 8.30am - 1.00pm, Tuesday & Wednesday 8.30am - 4.00pm and Friday 8.30am - 3.00pm.  All students are welcome before school, after school and during break and lunchtimes.  Homework club is available after school for an hour most days and students may use books and computers with a member of staff on hand to help.


There are over 18,000 books, incorporating both fiction and non-fiction and a selection of daily newspapers and penodicals.  Stock is replenished at regular intervals with current titles always in abundance.  Students are given login details when they join the school which enables them to manage their own account and write book reviews.  'Oliver' is the Library Management System which students can use to search for resources and books that they may need.  'Oliver' also holds a large database of reliable web links and other online resources to help students with their homework or information needs.

Twenty seven computers with Microsoft Office applications with access to the internet and library printer are available during break and lunchtimes. 

Library Lessons

All students in Year 7 are timetabled for a library lesson for an hour a fortnight.  During this lesson students are shown how to use the library, learn about book stock in the library, take part in shared reading and have an opportunity to read and review their chosen books.


A wide range of activities take place in the LRC, including the Carnegie Shadowing Club,tournaments, board games, bookmark making and book quizzes.  Many in-school competitions and reading challenges run throughout the school year and we are proud that our students have gained significant recognition through national competitions.
