Cheadle LRC


DVDs are available to borrow free of charge to students.


Journals/Newspapers - we subscribe to a wide range of journals and daily newspapers.


Cross-site loans can be arranged within 24 hours and loans from the British Library can also be arranged for items not available locally.  We also have close links with Stockport Library Service and can arrange for you to access their facilities and information sources.


Computers are available to access the curriculum network (with Microsoft Office applications), the Internet, and Moodle (the college Virtual Learning Environment).   We also subscribe to an excellent choice of online subject specific resources which are accessible from the VLE. 


Please note you must have your college ID card to use LRC services.

Improving facilities for all

A further £1.5m upgrade at Cheadle is now ongoing and the Buxton Lane site at Marple now benefits from new windows and heating.  


At Marple the joint planning application with ASDA to significantly redevelop the Buxton Lane site has been shelved.  Alternative plans are now being considered.
