Let all our bright

LRC

Ss Fisher & More R.C. High School have received funding for the development of a new, hi-tech Learning Resource Centre. We are all very excited about this fantastic resource and the opportunities it will offer our students.

Building starts in September 2017 and should be completed by the end of that academic year.

Our new Learning Resource Centre will offer a welcoming environment for studying and reading.

The LRC will be open to students and staff from 7.45am until 5.00pm daily. It will be a calm and relaxing environment for studying, reading for pleasure and of course exploring and borrowing the resources we have available.

Students will be able to use the LRC before and after school and during breaks. They can also visit in lesson time to carry out research tasks or follow our Accelerated Reader programme.

We have a growing variety of resources available for our students:

Reading for Pleasure

All our students are encouraged to read regularly for pleasure. Students can borrow a maximum of 3 books at a time, and borrow each book for up to two weeks at a time.

Recommended Reading Lists are currently available for our KS3 and KS4 students. Students can choose from a large range of fiction, popular non-fiction, biography and graphic novels. The KS3 list also has Accelerated Reader book levels for guidance on reading difficulty.

Please see below to view and download our KS3 and KS4 Recommended Reading List.

Reading for Research

Our non-fiction collection aims to support students in studying for their exams and explore their hobbies and areas of interest.

In addition to traditional paper books, we offer a variety of online resources to help students with their research and wider reading. These include:

Students can find out more and access these resources via our VLE and ShowMyHomework.

Keeping it Topical

The library is launching a new range of magazines and periodicals this year. We will stock magazines that students can read for pleasure, covering popular subjects such as cars, technology, sport and fashion, and also a range of academic periodicals that will support them in their course studies and wider reading around their subjects.

Planning for the Future

We also have a careers library that will inform our students’ decision-making throughout their school careers. The information available will vary from choosing GCSEs, A-Levels, college or university, to practical advice on choosing a career, preparing for work, apprenticeships opportunities, gap years and more.

Keeping it Reel!

This year students will also be able to borrow DVDs from the library. These will be on overnight loan only, and students can choose from a range of films related to their studies and hobbies, plus critically acclaimed films to broaden their horizons!
