The Learning Hub

The Learning Hub is a wonderful multi-purpose space: we host a library of over 9000 books to aid with personal and academic growth; we have a newly updated computer suite with access to printing; the Learning Hub team facilitate tutoring and guided revision sessions as well as allowing time for independent study.

 

As the “hub” of the school, the space is also used to host various themed events throughout the year, all of which contribute to the culture of learning and development that Wood Green Academy is known for. A safe and inclusive space for all, the Learning Hub is open to all students before and after school as well as throughout the day via a regular rotation.

Books

With over 9,000 books to choose from, if a student believes they “don’t like reading”, then they simply haven’t spent enough time exploring the Learning Hub.

 

Our Library shelves are full of every kind of tale, adventure and mystery. From the mythical adventures of magic wielding creatures in fantasy realms, to the very real troubles and trials of teenagers that can be found in the contemporary section, our shelves cover every world imaginable. And as for our non-fiction collection, students can explore everything from anthropology to zoology; law to languages; biographies to cultural histories.

 

We are currently focused on broadening the spectrum of content we host – the team are always keen to get new book recommendations from students and staff to make sure we cater to everybody’s tastes and learning journeys. We’re also looking to expand our range in resources to include audio and e-books.
