The concept of the Homework Club, which has been around for the past two years, has been broadened to take in four days (Monday to Thursday) from 3.30 pm till 5.00 pm. Years 7 to 9 meet in the Design Centre and Years 10 to 12 meet in in the Senior Learning Centre.

Staff with expertise in Maths, English, the Sciences and the Humanities have been allocated for these times as have Alumni from 2019, who excelled in their school work. These people have one aim and that is to help students who attend. Student are welcome to come for one or all four sessions and whilst their attendance is noted via a roll, there is NO COMPULSION to attend.

The feedback from students has been overwhelmingly positive.

So why not attend and gain the benefit of the free advice of experts in their field??

This an initiative that the College is willing to support financially because we understand the value of academic self-discipline.

Next week will see another academic initiative. Thursday 20 February selected Year 12 Students will teach Maths, Chemistry, Physics, English, Business (QCE and IBDP) to their peers in numerous Academic Breakfast in the Ray Dining Room from 7.20 until 8.30am. The College will supply breakfast to ALL attendees (to serve as Brain Food). The idea to have several Academic Breakfasts a term where students tutor students. This initiative is open only to Year 12 students. There is a registration form on the Year 12 School Box page for interested students.

The only question is: “Why wouldn’t you come?"

Yours in academic success – for our students, Dr Brohier
