The learning hubs
Formerly known as the Learning Resource Centre, our learning hubs are the ideal space for independent study, quiet reading or having a 1:1 with a tutor. With access to over 20,000 ebooks as well as novels, graphic novels and learning resources, the hubs are a perfect place to find inspiration.
Any student can request a private chat with a learning mentor, as can a member of staff who has a concern about an individual. The focus is on you as an individual, this is your time to discuss the area you need help with. Together we will work out the key areas for you to focus on.
We work closely with teaching staff to deliver lessons that will build your confidence and prepare you for life beyond further education. Using different techniques such as games and activities, topics are presented in a way to help you grow as an independent learner.
Outside the classroom
We hold regular competitions and activities. Whether it’s a reading challenge or pixel art competition, there’s an opportunity for everyone to take part. We also feature on the enrichment timetable and deliver study sessions, covering important skills from research to referencing.
