LEARNING RESOURCE CENTRE

Holy Trinity College has a large, bright and airy Learning Resource Centre which is centrally located on the first floor.  It is easily accessible to pupils and staff and provides a welcoming and comfortable environment in which to read, do research or use the laptops.

Any pupil may use the LRC when it is open, but at Break and Lunch times, only the designated Year Groups may use the laptops at the specified times.
