Learning Resource Centre

Welcome to the LRC!!

Here at Walkden High School, we are proud to say our Learning Resource Centre is a hub of activity throughout the school day. Based on the first floor of the building near Expression zone, this multipurpose room comprises of 30 PC’s and a large collection of Fiction and Non‐Fiction books. During the day, the LRC is a regular classroom, used by a variety of subjects. The LRC is open from 8am until 4:15pm to ensure pupil’s can read or complete homework in a supervised environment. We also have pens and other stationary for sale so you will never be without a pen again!


The LRC is also open during social times; a small group of student librarians assist Mrs. Hastings to ensure the smooth running during these free times. It is the responsibility of the student librarians to keep the number of pupils to a reasonable level; this ensures a quiet and calm working environment for all pupils using the LRC.


We have a large collection of books ranging from classics through to fantasy and horror books. Since the move from the old site to the new, we have been actively trying to update and rejuvenate our collection of books. This process will inevitably be an ongoing project as reading trends grow and evolve over time. We openly encourage reading for pleasure; The Snug contains blankets and beanbags, ready for pupils to snuggle down and get lost in their favourite book. Books are available for loan for 2 weeks at a time; Mrs. Hastings will be able to help you select the perfect book for you, whatever your reading level.
