Learning Resource Centre #Imagination Station

Resources

There are over 18,000 books, incorporating both fiction and non-fiction and a selection of daily newspapers and periodicals.  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.
