WELCOME TO KINETON HIGH SCHOOL

Learning Resource Centre

Our attractive, busy and lively Learning Resource Centre is an important and integral part of the school, enhancing and enriching not only learning but also your leisure time.  It is an ideal research and work area for classes or individual study.  
 The Learning Resource Centre caters for all abilities and enthusiastic staff are always on hand to help with enquiries and to offer advice to you on your selection of resources, both for research and for reading for pleasure.

I bet you didn’t know that just reading for pleasure will increase your attainment?  So open the door and come in now.

Everyone is welcome to use the Learning Resource Centre at any time.  With the teacher’s permission, students are able to use the resources during lesson time, individually or in groups.  Students are taught research skills and Library staff work alongside teachers, supporting learning.
