Timings

We will be running 2 sessions a day, one from 10:00–12:30 and the 2nd, from12:30–15:00.
If students have a morning session they should arrive at school by 09:30–10 am via the Community Entrance (car park) where they will be met by a member of staff. Students who arrive after 10:15am will be denied access to the building. If students have an afternoon session they should arrive between 12:15–12:30.

 

Students who are staying for both sessions will receive lunch.

 

Why?

Weekend intervention classes have in previous years had a significant impact on final grades. Attendance is therefore vital and students will be at a real disadvantage if they fail to attend.

 

By Invitation only

Head of departments will invite students by giving them a letter; parents will also receive a text. Please let the Head of department know if students are unable to attend so they can invite other students.

When there are two subjects on at the same time, students should go to their allocated subject.

 

Effort and Attitude

It is important to note that teachers are giving up their weekend to help students get the best possible grades. So we expect students to put in 100% effort and to have the correct attitude towards their work in order to get the most out of the sessions.The groups will be small to enable students to have more 1-1 support and to ask questions.

 

Dress code

You do not have to wear school uniform, but please dress appropriately for learning.
