School Library Association Inspiration Award

Tuesday, 3 October, 2017

The LRC was awarded the prestigious School Library Association Inspiration Award yesterday in London. Headmaster, David Elstone, was accompanied at the awards ceremony by Ian Sanderson, architect Clare Ailward, former LRC Manager Sue Tomlinson and current manager Sarah Tenniswood.

At the ceremony the Headmaster explained to the judges that the LRC was the culmination of eleven years hard work before introducing the following video which was produced for the ceremony.

For the first time ever, the award was shared between 3 schools namely Headington School in Oxfordshire, the American School of Madrid and Hymers College.

The award is made to the school library space that shows inspiration, innovation, creativity and resourcefulness in its library design and in its use. The judges were impressed by the strong sense of harmony as the LRC’s contemporary design exchanges reflections with the traditional school buildings. More importantly, they appreciated and valued our vision of the LRC as a community hub – “a superb library at the very heart of the school”.
