The Learning Resources Centre (LRC) is located in the Hive. A vibrant, bustling hub, housing both print and electronic resources accessible in situ or on the go through Eclipse.net. Students can borrow up to two books at a time, for two weeks. Quiet working spaces for homework, silent reading zones, IT facilities and break out areas for group work/classwork are all on offer in the LRC.
Plus, e-books can be borrowed by downloading the Wheeler’s e-book platform app. Students can renew, reserve and recommend books for the LRC at any time. Book donations are always welcomed!
The LRC’s Showbie Group provides all our students at Manor CE Academy with the opportunity to access some of the LRC’s resources & activities, whilst at home e.g. e-books, book related activities, competitions and quizzes. Encouraging students to gain the many benefits of reading and participating in book related activities, with other likeminded Manor students.
Eclipse.net acts like a portal allowing staff and students access to the LRC on the go.

The LRC is accessible to students during registration with their Form Tutor and independently at lunchtimes and after school. Closing at 4.15pm Monday to Thursday. All students can enter the LRC at lunchtimes.

Low-cost stationery is available from the Stationery Shop throughout the day and students are able to complete homework, borrow and return books, use computers or their iPads in the zones provided. Plus, it is a space for quiet reading, book discussion and individual study too.
