The modern and light Learning Resource Centres (LRC) provide a welcoming and stimulating environment where superb facilities for traditional book and journal study are combined with the latest computer and internet technology. They offer a central learning resource for pupils and staff for all their academic needs as well as extra-curricular activities and recreational reading. This is complemented by the College's inspirational and driven LRC team who facilitate the provision of great opportunities which enthuse pupils about reading and motivate pupils to undertake their own creative writing.

With regular visits from famous authors, such as Stephen Baxter (Old Edwardian), Philip Caveney and Joseph Delaney, pupils enjoy and thrive on such enriching activity which motivates and provides an experience they will remember all their lives. It also promotes a writing culture in the College with an increased understanding and valuing of the process and craft of writing.

The library management system, Eclipse.net, is accessible from all computers in the school and from home. This contains details about all the books and audio-visual items held in the library, as well as links to over 12,000 recommended websites. Pupils can also log on to reserve books, check their loans and to add reviews of books.
