We aim to provide all the facilities required by our students and understand the importance of technology and specialised study areas.
Library and Study Areas
The Learning Centres comprise the Library and the Study Centre.¬† The former was purpose-built in 1974 as part of an extension when the grammar school became a sixth form college.¬† The ground floor is on two levels: the bookshelves and enquiry desk are on one level; the main study area is on the lower level.¬† A mezzanine silent study area is located above the bookshelves.¬† Small improvements to the layout were made in 2008 when the Library was also re-decorated. Study places total 68; computers, 25.¬†¬†
The Study Centre opened in September 2008, following the re-design and enlargement of the Learning Centre.¬† The enquiry desk and bookshelves plus the main study and computer areas are on the ground floor; a mezzanine floor has PCs and individual study tables. Study places total 26; computers 48.
Both Centres also have laptops with wi-fi access and soft seating areas where students can read. Together the Library and Study Centre offer a range of learning environments.¬† The Centres have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and are very popular with students.
New students receive an induction; resources and services are regularly promoted.¬† The Centres put on their own events and participate in college-wide activities. To encourage students to use their local library students can also join Warwickshire Libraries in the Centres.
For many subjects, specialist equipment is needed. We provide all the necessary materials and equipment for students to get the best out of their course. From video cameras to arts materials we keep supplies fully stocked and available for students as required.
With our spacious gym and large playing fields we offer a huge range of sporting activities. See our Enrichment pages to find out more.
