Welcome to Darland High School Digital Resource Centre!
The Digital Resource Centre is open to students at break and lunchtime Monday to Thursday for individual research, group work and recreational reading. It is open to all students to encourage reading for pleasure and promoting independent learning. On Friday lunchtime the DRC is restricted to year 11 to promote revision.
We have a wide variety of books including award winning books and a suite of computers for access to digital learning platforms. The Digital Resource Centre has timetabled lessons and is bookable for staff to enhance the classroom learning experiences. The Digital Resource Centre is an extension of the classroom environment.
Students are entitled to borrow two books at any one time for a period of two weeks. Items may be renewed for a further period provided that they are not required by another borrower.
When will my child use the DRC?
Students in Year 7 are encouraged to visit in the Autumn term to familiarise themselves with the facilities. All students are invited to select books for recreational reading at home, for form time or for English lessons or to use the IT facilities for research and homework. Teachers and Teaching Assistants can arrange DRC based sessions during lesson time to support classwork learning
Code of Conduct
We remind users of the DRC that this is a working environment in which ALL users must respect the need of others and do not disrupt the calm atmosphere we aim to maintain. Regretfully the use of mobile phones, private music, food and drink are not permitted.
