Support for Learning

Support will be available for those pupils with an identified learning need (literacy skills). Below the Sixth Form there are up to four timetabled lessons per week where pupils will be able to develop their study skills and literacy skills within a small group. The group size, ideally, will be up to five pupils.

Support Learning is timetabled in lieu of the second Modern Language in both Second and Third Form. For those pupils who may still require support for their GCSEs, then this is available in lieu of Option 2 (Science) or a Core Language.

Sixth Form support is available for the small number of pupils who may require it and it is timetabled on a needs basis, usually only for the first term. It is rare for support to be required in the Upper Sixth.
