We consider it part of our responsibility to prepare students for the adult world where a 37‐40 hour working week is commonplace. Therefore, in addition to 10 hours lesson time, we expect all students to be spending at least 7 hours per subject per week on independent work (for students taking 3 A Levels). This could be formal homework set by your teacher or additional work to support learning or revision.

Our Study Skills Programme, new for September 2022, aims to give the students the skills to become highly effective independent learners, as well as focusing their minds on their own personal vision for success, systems and practices they can use, as well as discussing their own effort levels and attitudes towards any setbacks.
