The change from GCSE to A-Levels can be quite considerable for students. They must adjust to new ways of studying. They are expected to be a lot more independent in regards to their studies and learn to organise and structure their own time effectively and carry out research with minimal guidance from teachers. As part of this, students have part of their timetable devoted to independent study. However, as many parents are aware, students can end up distracted by socialising which can have a detrimental effect on their studies.
Therefore, we ensure that every student has compulsory Supervised Study Sessions built into their timetable. These sessions enable students to study quietly under the supervision of staff ensuring that free time is used productively and efficiently.
