The Learning Resource Centre
Sandringham Learning Resource Centre is a vibrant and busy place with an excellent selection of resources.
Our brand new Learning Resource Centre, staffed by Jean Kirby, Director of Learning and Emily Critchley, Assistant Librarian, is located in K block on the first floor and is open at the following times :
- Monday to Thursday 8.30am to 4.15pm.
- Friday 8.30am to 4pm.
The Learning Resource Centre is a spacious and welcoming environment with a large fiction and non-fiction stock, periodicals and other resources (DVDs, Audio C.D.s and eBooks) and also has a Careers Centre. It has two main spaces; a large seated classroom area and an informal space with comfortable seating for quiet reading. The study area has seating and study tables used regularly throughout the school day by classes having lessons, doing silent reading or research tasks. There are also many computers available for students to produce and print out work.
The Learning Resource Centre is one of the main hubs of the school and is a welcoming, inviting space to visit, work in and spend time, both independently and with friends. There is an excellent team of LRC student helpers who can provide support and guidance to other students. The students range from Year 8 to Year 12 who volunteer to help behind the desk during their free time. The Learning Resource Centre Reading Challenge is an annual scheme for Years 7-9 to encourage reading and improve literacy, with students able to attain various rewards along the way. On arrival at Sandringham School, Year 7 students take part in a series of lessons in the Learning Resource Centre to ensure that they become independent learners as quickly as possible.
