About the Learning Resource Centre

Myton is proud to have an excellent Learning Resource Centre (LRC) situated at the heart of the school and housing around 12,000 items catalogued on the library system.

We are open every day:

  • Mon-Thurs – 8am-4pm
  • Fri – 8am-3.45pm

There is seating for up to 72 students, 50 downstairs and 22 in the Sixth Form library. Teaching staff are welcome to book the LRC for class sessions on research, reading, or information handling skills at any time subject to availability. We have a team of Student Librarians who are trained in resource organisation, customer service and the day-to-day administration of the library system.

Students and staff are welcome to use the LRC before and after school, break and lunchtimes. It is an optional venue for Sixth Form private study.
