Learning Resource Centre (LRC)
Here at Preston Manor, we thrive to master literacy. We aim to get our students to excel in all other areas of their subjects. The LRC focuses on supporting the development of the necessary tools and skills to achieve students' potential. This embeds our school's value of Self Directed Learning.
Opening Times: Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:00pm
Students can borrow a maximum of 2 books at a time for a total duration of 3 weeks (but they can be renewed if the book has not been reserved.)
Our collection includes:
- Fiction books: We offer a wide variety of fiction books suitable for all ages and reading levels. This also includes a well-stocked selection of graphic novels and manga.
- Non-fiction books: We stock a wide range of information books to support research and homework tasks, as well as recreational reading.
