The Learning Resource Centre is at the heart of teaching and learning at Addey and Stanhope as a central, whole school resource which aims to:
All staff and students are automatically members of the LRC which is staffed by a professional librarian, Ms Williams. All students are encouraged to make full use of the resources, advice, guidance and support available to ensure they achieve their full academic potential and success whilst at Addey and Stanhope.
We subscribe to several online resources containing hundreds of high-quality articles on today’s news and social issues- take a look at these brilliant websites you and your child can use from home for reading, research and studying:
You can request a username and password for these sites from the Learning Resources Centre Manager here.
All students are responsible for all items borrowed until they are returned and cleared off your record. Books must be returned on time. Lost or damaged items must be paid for.
The LRC also contributes to students’ social development by involving them in the running of the LRC. This is excellent preparation for future work experience, CVs and applications to be a Prefect in Year 11. Please see Ms Williams for more information.
The Library runs many activities and events throughout the academic year such as author visits, Bookbuzz, World Book Day, the Carnegie Book Award and is involved in the local Lewisham Book Award and Lewisham Book Quiz each year. Events will be advertised through the library, student briefing, the Well-Being period and social media. We will ensure that there is a variety of events catering for all students however some projects/events (e.g. First Story) will be run through departments and targeted at specific year groups.
Students are expected to follow the Addeys Way in all aspects of their behaviour in the LRC; no food or drink is to be consumed and resources are to be treated with respect.
