Learning Resource Centre

You will likely visit the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) on a regular basis during your time at Fitzharrys, often as part of a lesson or on an individual research assignment. In addition, the LRC is usually open to all students during break and lunchtimes and our LRC computers are available to use for school work.


The Learning Resource Centre has a fantastic library of books (both fiction and non-fiction), which is updated on a regular basis. Keep an eye out for the ‘Books of the Month’ display which highlights great reads from a different genre each month. If you are looking for further ideas for great reads, why not choose something from our recommendation booklet:

Student Librarians

The Learning Resource Centre offers Year 7 students the chance to become student librarians, helping with the upkeep of the LRC as well as assisting other students in choosing and checking-out books. Places are limited and there is a waiting list. Register your interest with the Learning Resource Centre Manager.

Using the Library

The LRC is a welcoming and peaceful place for reading, working and quiet, educational games. We have several chess sets and a collection of other games for use at breaktimes; please enquire at the LRC desk for more information. Break and lunchtimes must remain a quiet environment for students to work and continue their learning or to read and relax. For this reason, there are rules all LRC users are expected to follow:

  • Respectful, thoughtful behaviour towards staff and fellow LRC users at all times
  • No loud socialising – quiet voices only
  • No mobile phones
  • No food or drink

The Learning Resource Centre also hosts regular lunchtime clubs, fun seasonal quizzes and meetings for groups such as the Carnegie Awards Shadowers – drop into the LRC for more information on these events.
