Ormiston Venture LRC
Welcome to the Learning Resources Centre at
Ormiston Venture Academy
Every student and all staff automatically become members of the LRC at Venture when they join the Academy.
Tuesday – Thursday 8.30–4.00pm
and every break and lunchtime
Students may borrow up to four items at any one time. These can be a mixture of fiction, non-fiction or audio books (all year 7 and 8 should have an Accelerated Reader book).
After school clubs:
Wednesday – Kids Lit Quiz – http://www.kidslitquiz.com
Friday – Book Club (with creative writing and crafts)
Within the LRC we have a bank of ten computers which are for use during lesson time, break, lunch time and after school for extended learning and extra research.
All Year 7s and 8s take part in the Accelerated Reader scheme.
