Teaching Facilities

Our Sixth Form is housed in its own centre at our historic York Street site. The facilities include a state-of-the-art digital Language Laboratory, dedicated Art Studio, Lecture Theatre, Conference Room, Dining Room and specialist teaching areas including 6 Science Laboratories.

Departments are well-resourced and are taught in specialist rooms. All teaching rooms are equipped with computer projectors and / or interactive whiteboard facilities.

IT Facilities

The Sixth Form site has several ICT suites as well as PCs, netbooks, laptops and iPads available in our study areas. We also encourage students to bring their own devices (smartphone, laptop or tablet) to use in lessons and for independent study). Wi-Fi access is available throughout the site and can be accessed at any time.

Student Study Facilities

There are several areas in the Sixth Form to undertake independent study during study periods. These include our recently refurbished and extended Library, the Quad and dedicated ICT suites.

One student who joined CRGS from Ss John Fisher and Thomas More RC High School commented: “The newly refurbished Sixth Form Library provides a calm working environment in which I can complete my work and explore my subjects in greater depth.  The Library has an extensive stock of resources, tailored to every student’s needs.”

Students select two periods per week, designated as Directed Study Periods (DSPs), to undertake work in the Library / Quad, although they can also work in these study areas at any time.

Canteen

Our newly extended canteen is the main social space for students and offers food before school, at morning breaks and at lunchtime.

Sports Facilities

Our dedicated sports facilities are located at our Main School site on Chatburn Road. The facilities include a new Sports Hall, a 3G all-weather pitch, hard tennis courts, netball courts, hockey and football pitches.
