Learning Resource Centre
Helsby High School Learning Resource Centre’s mission is to encourage learning through providing staff and students with the appropriate resources, information and support they need.
The Learning Resource Centre is a warm and inspiring space where pupils feel safe and stimulated. It offers space for approximately 50 pupils who are welcome to come and complete their homework, revise for exams, and foster a love of life-long learning outside the classroom through reading.
In the Learning Resource Centre there is a calm classroom space where pupils can study. There is also an IT suite which contains 14 computers and a class set of iPads. There is a separate 6th form area where pupils from years 12 and 13 are encouraged to revise in silence surrounded by books and information which supports their curriculum.
The fiction section of the library is constantly being updated with the latest titles in Children’s and Young Adult fiction. Students can request titles if there is something they would like to read. Books can be borrowed for a fortnight and renewed if necessary. The non-fiction sets out to support any curriculum needs the pupils have and asks pupils to further read around their subjects, developing their ability to learn independently.
