    • Fiction Books

      The Resource CentreWe have 100s of fiction books that you can borrow for up to two weeks.

    • Non-Fiction Books

      The Resource CentreSometimes 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.

    • Computers

      The Resource CentreBecause so many people want to use computers, they are usually reserved for those doing homework. But on Friday lunchtimes and afterschool, you are allowed to play on games!

      The Resource CentreWe have a small selection of audiobooks that you can take home for two weeks and listen to.

    • DVDs

    • Magazines

      The Resource CentreWe 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.

    • Student Librarians

      The Resource CentreWhen 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 Miss Garrett or Mrs Braggins about becoming a student librarian too.

    • Careers Corner

      The Resource CentreThis corner is full of information about jobs, what qualifications you need and what options you have.  There are university and sixth form prospectuses.
