Recommended Reads & BOOK LISTS

Apart from reading and research, the library is often a place for quiet reflection. Many of the students see the LRC as a safe haven away from the hustle and bustle of the playground. Sometimes a sanctuary for those with friendship issues.
An area of the LRC is designated as a ‘chill-out’ zone for students requiring sanctuary thus widening the choice of space and option of therapy. As a school, we already cater for vulnerable students with outstanding pastoral care in the Pastoral Block, in Learning Support, with the Health and Welfare Officer and in the Inclusion Room.
Pastoral staff can book the LRC for these students to do their school work as well as enjoy ‘time-out’ with the jigsaw puzzles, drawing, and colouring provided. Books are also available to read covering all areas of mental health and teenage concerns in our ‘Shelf Help’ display area.
