Welcome to The LRC

The LRC exists to inspire and support the learning of the whole school community, the curriculum and beyond. Our belief is that reading brings enjoyment and offers the key skill for lifelong learning, with the power to transform lives. The LRC actively supports and promotes reading for pleasure and for information. The Bebington High Sports College School LRC provides materials that promote the love of reading and support the curriculum of the school. The LRC provides printed, non-printed, and electronic resources for students and staff. Students utilize LRC resources to explore ideas within the teaching environment and enhance their independent learning skills by completing assigned work. Bebington High Sports College students will become independent LRC users, informed users of information, and life-long learners.

What We Offer

The school LRC aims to be both comfortable and welcoming offering a multi-media learning space with a constantly evolving set of resources ranging from printed fiction to the world of online information. Students are safe to browse the internet under the supervision of the Librarian and the Impero security system which helps to make sure our students stay safe online. Students can also reset their passwords in the LRC for the various online resources used to support the curriculum e.g. Class Charts, Mathswatch, GCSEpod, Kerboodle and Accelerated Reader.

The Accelerated Reader Programme

The LRC aims to play a full part in providing resources to back up the school's Accelerated Reader Program.(https://ukhosted32.renlearn.co.uk/1893514/) Students can use this link to access book quizzes with their username being their school network login and their password being "abc". All Year 7, 8 and 9 students also take part in the Accelerated Reader individual and monitored reading programme in which they read their own choice of books and at their own level. Students are required to read for 1 hour every 2 weeks in a timetabled English Language lesson where they will be set targets by staff. This will be backed up by students reading independently at home for 1 hour per week. There is an inter-class competition and rewards for our "Word Millionaires".
