Learning Support

There are a range of community activities in the Learning Support Department.  This department supports learners across the school community.  Support is offered inside lessons and during registration and lunch-times.


In Class Support

This involves supporting younger learners in the classroom for one or two hours each week.  You can use your experience at school to advise and help younger students in the classroom. You will be placed in subjects where you feel confident that you can offer meaningful help.


Homework Club

This is a homework club in the library every lunch time.  Three or four sixth formers spend lunch times (one hour) helping younger students to complete their homework.

One or two mornings a week, during registration you will listen and guide a younger student to improve their reading.
