Yewlands Academy

Learning Resource Centre

The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) provides a range of tools and resources designed to support and develop our student's knowledge, skills and learning at Yewlands Academy.



The LRC houses both a fiction and non-fiction library. The library is well stocked with classic and modern novels and the collection is developed with student support. Students are encouraged to read books that challenge and develop their reading ability.

During break time and outside of school hours the LRC is used by students to complete homework, carry out independent study tasks and take part in extracurricular activities.

Throughout the school day, the LRC is used for timetabled lessons, KS3 English reading sessions and targeted interventions such as one to one reading and SEND group work.  

A bank of 22 computers contain all the necessary software to match curriculum needs.
