Student Support / Supervised Study
There are many changes and adaptations to make once progressing from GCSE to A-Levels, including the amount of independent study and revision time as well as the management of increasing workloads. Compulsory Supervised Study periods are sessions, built in to each student’s timetable, ensuring that free time is productively and effectively utilised.
Each student will have up to six periods of Supervised Study in which they will complete assignments, homework, and revision as well as organise and study for upcoming exams and assessments. Although the students have minimal guidance from teachers during these periods, Mrs Thomas, Student Progress Administrator, will ensure that work, is completed, distractions are to a minimum and full attendance is adhered to.
These sessions will take place in our state of the art Regent Learning Centre, in which, each student will have access to their own computer or quiet area for studying, in order to facilitate the students attempt to reach their full potential. If these conditions are achieved, then we, as a College are confident that we can develop students into ‘Independent Learners’, fostering the necessary skills and mind-set vital to achieve success both before, during and after tertiary education. This links eloquently to our Regent Group mission statement: ‘The end of Education is character’.
