Learning Resource Centre

The Learning Resource Centre is unfortunately closed due to Covid 19 regulations, however, we are running a mobile library service.  Pupils can access a form for borrowing, renewing and returning books via their tutor group on Microsoft Teams. We hope to reach as many pupils as possible with the wonderful books in our collection and are very much looking forward to when we can open our doors again.

Key Stage 3 - Reading List Key Stage 4 - Reading List

To keep in touch, we are producing a monthly magazine called THE FOREWORD.  It is full of library news, book recommendations, craft ideas, puzzles and competitions.  If you are a budding writer, artist or have an interest in journalism and would like to be involved in THE FOREWORD, please email LRC@garthhillcollege.com.

Under normal circumstances the library is a bright, busy and fun place to visit.  Pupils join us for independent learning, playing games, puzzles, craft and conversation.  We have fiction and non-fiction books you can borrow and PCs and laptops are available for homework.  If you forget your pencil case, we also sell tools for learning.  Our maker space is bursting with craft activities and there are seating areas for you to read, play board games or catch up with your friends.  We just ask that you don't bring food or drink into the library or use your mobile phone.

We love reading and want to share this with you.  We normally run lessons in the library to help you find your way around our book collection and explore new books and genres. If you don't know what to read next, we are happy to help you find your next page turner.  Our library is also enhanced by our wonderful pupil library assistants who help Miss Preuth and Ms Mesley.  Our pupil library assistants are very kind and can help with homework too.  Once the library is open again, we will be recruiting for more pupil assistants, so please contact us if you are interested at LRC@garthhillcollege.com.
