Saturday School

We have a long tradition of going the extra mile with our students, and this includes extra, free sessions on a Saturday mornings, and during the school holidays, to ensure our students get that extra nudge to get them over their individual line.

The Saturday sessions run between 9.30-11.30am. We recommend students bring a snack – though we will provide a hot drink – and they do not have to wear school uniform.

Some Saturday Schools are specifically targeted so are invite only, whilst others are open to all Year 11 and/or Year 13 students. Naturally, students and parents/carers will be informed in advance by teachers.

The sessions are voluntary – though there might be one or two students who find they are compulsory if we think they are lagging behind.

The current Saturday Schools are scheduled as follows:

This schedule will be added to through the school year and details will be well circulated.

Holiday Schools

We run a number of sessions through the different school holidays and these are circulated in advance of the break.

We would suggest that all Year 11 children speak to their families about avoiding holidays in Easter 2021 and June 2021 as these will be key revision points, whether there are sessions or not.

More details will follow as the holidays run through.
