About the Learning Resource Centre

Myton is proud to have an excellent Learning Resource Centre situated at the heart of the school and housing around 25,000 items catalogued on the library system.

We are open every day:

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

Please be aware that the LRC is currently only open for Year 7 lessons and Year 12 independent study.

There is seating for up to 75 students, and teaching staff are welcome to book the LRC for class sessions on research, reading, or information handling skills at any time. 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.

Everyone is welcome to use the LRC at any time. It is an optional venue for Sixth Form private study and students are welcome to come for authorised visits during lesson time, individually or in groups. The LRC is open after school when pupils can enjoy using the LRC facilities, or simply relax!
