Looking for a book? Ask Oliver!
The Resource Centre is open from 8:15am until 4:00pm
We have 100s of fiction books that you can borrow for up to two weeks.
Sometimes you’ll come in with a class to use non-fiction, or you can come in and look through them yourself. We have books about everything from skateboarding to cooking, from Albert Einstein to Wayne Rooney, from other galaxies to the history of Soham.
Because so many people want to use computers, they are usually reserved for those doing homework. But after school you are allowed to play on games!
We have a small selection of audiobooks that you can take home for two weeks and listen to.
You can borrow a DVD for two nights or over the weekend. We like to keep our collection as up to date as we can – so if there’s anything you’d like to request tell Mrs Skeels.
We regularly receive: Flipside, All About Space, Empire, Top Gear, White Dwarf, Fresh Young Millionaires, Computer Active, BBC Good Food and Focus. You can find previous issues around the corner as well.
Keep up to date by flicking through The Times, First News or one of the local, weekly newspapers.
We also keep a book of clippings with any mention of Soham Village College!
We run a small school stationery shop.
When you go to check out a book, you’ll probably be helped by one of our student librarians. They volunteer at some breaks and lunchtimes to sort books and run the desk.
If you really like spending time in the Resource Centre you can ask Mrs Skeels about becoming a student librarian too.
This corner is full of information about jobs, what qualifications you need and what options you have. There are university and sixth form prospectuses.
Remember, there are also useful links on the Information, Advice & Guidance section of the SVC Website
These are just some of the things you can find in the Resource Centre. It’s also the place to come if you want to talk to someone about your plans after leaving Soham Village College; come in any time and speak to Miss Garrett.
