Study Skills

A greater emphasis is now placed on the performance of students in their final examinations.  In the majority of subjects, coursework is being phased out.

Through their schooling and in particular in the few months before the exams start students will need to be able to learn independently.  This is in itself a skill.  As a school we are promoting the importance of independent learning and study skills to the students though special events, assemblies, work in tutor time and in lessons generally.

This page will be used to provide students and parents with resources and links that may be helpful in supporting study skills.  Each student will have different needs so every resource might not be useful to every student but I hope you will find something of benefit.
