Worthing High School



The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is split across two distinct spaces – a library of nearly nine thousand books, and a suite of thirty networked computers.

It is a welcoming space for learning, reading, and homework, as well as access to integrated iPads, colour printing, a large new non-fiction section and a well-equipped stationery shop. It is open and staffed from 08:00 to 17:00 every weekday by LRC Manager Mrs A Regan and LRC Assistant Mr N Hallard. They can be contacted directly via

Reading for fun when you are young means better mental and physical health, higher grades at GCSE, improved relationships and higher job income as adults. Students in Years 7 – 9 will attend an hour-long ‘Literacy Lesson’ each fortnight, and can access the library during the day to borrow, renew or return books.
Everyone using the LRC is subject to adhering to the code of conduct and these are on display in the LRC. This ensures the smooth running of all aspects of the LRC and a productive working environment.
