Thought of the Month

It takes as much energy to say something positive as it does to say something negative. Make sure you say only positive words.

Welcome to our Learning Resource Centre

  • You will find a good book to take on holiday or simply read for pleasure. There is so much to choose from: crime, adventure, science fiction and much more 
  • Perhaps you would rather explore Preston’s local history, look into true crime, read a biography of someone famous, or relax in mind, body and spirit? With graphic novels and audio books there is something for everyone
  • Storytelling, author visits and themed days are all planned for the future
  • If you prefer quieter spaces our 2 study pods can be booked for both individual study and group work
  • Magazines, newspapers, periodicals and DVDs available

Happy to assist pupils with research, or to help and advise on reading choices.

We also have Pupil Librarians to help during Break and Lunch periods.

Homework club runs during lunch time, come along we are here to help


8.00 a.m. until 4.00 p.m.


Everyone in the school is automatically a member of Library.

Resources are issued using the Eclipse Library Management System which is available for everyone to use through Moodle.

Pupils can borrow up to three books, for a two week period

We do not fine pupils for bringing books back late, however if the books are more than 8 weeks overdue, a stop will be put on their name and they will not be allowed to borrow any more books.


We request that pupils:

  • Be considerate to all users
  • Do not eat or drink or chew gum in the library
  • Keep talking to a minimum to allow everybody to concentrate
  • Obey instructions given by the librarian or pupil librarians
  • Look after the items they borrow
  • Return books on time
  • Visit the library to read- not to visit others
  • Ask for help if they are having problems locating resources

The Library is an accessible, safe and friendly environment that welcomes all Academy pupils and empowers them to reach their potential.
