Learning Resource Centre


Welcome to Debden Park’s Learning Resource Centre.

The library area of the LRC is a bright open space with over 8,000 books available for students to borrow. Each student is able to borrow up to two books for a two week loan period. The seating area is an open space with the recent addition of a soft stool area which is a flexible learning and teaching area. The LRC also has a large interactive whiteboard and is used as a teaching area along with its own computer suite; this also permits pupils to use the area for group work and produces a more relaxed feel during out of school opening hours.

The LRC is open to students Tuesdays to Fridays between 8am and 8:30am, every lunchtime and also after school from 3:10pm to 5pm. The LRC has many facilities for the students to use including computers, books, DVD’s, audio books, magazines and newspapers. Students are encouraged to use the area to work on their ILP’s, coursework and research to enhance their learning and encourage them to become independent learners. The LRC works closely with teachers across the school, providing extra support and help for any pupils looking to improve their in their learning.

The LRC is also host to many events and activities throughout the year such as the Write Stuff, book clubs, Carnegie Awards shadowing and many more. All Year 7’s have a library lesson  in which they take part in guided reading, working together  with their peers to develop and improve reading and comprehension as well as encouraging independent learning .
