Resource Based Learning Centre

The RBLC at The Billericay School

We see the role of the Resource Based Learning Centre as central to raising standards and maximising progress for all students through developing independent learners who read widely for pleasure and information.

We aim to encourage an enthusiasm about reading through a diverse range of material including books, magazines, audio-visual material such as talking books, DVDs and providing access to IT facilities, including the Internet.

The RBLC aims to provide:

  • A wide variety of resources to support students’ personal development and interests
  • A stimulating and exciting environment to support private study, group enquiry discussion and practical activity which is accessible to all 

The RBLC aims to help students develop:

  • Information and data handling skills
  • Research Skills
  • A passion for reading
