Boarder's Study Options
There are evening and weekend study sessions, which are supervised by boarding staff according to age. Year 7, 8 and 9 study in the library with up to three staff on hand to help students with their prep. Years 10 and 11 study in a classroom environment. Year 12 have one supervised study and one study in their bedrooms and Year 13 study in the bedrooms for both sessions, helping to promote independent learning and starting to prepare them for university life. Students are monitored very carefully working with the Heads of House and Heads of Year to ensure all boarders are reaching their full potential academically and support plans will be put into place where appropriate.
All boarders are placed into mentor groups. They are in a group of around five students and are allocated to a member of the boarding staff. They meet as a group on a fortnightly basis and provide the opportunity to discuss concerns, work on their student led prayers, look at their academic work and to have discussions over current affairs as a group. All students all follow a very well planned PSHE programme aimed specifically at boarders needs. Younger students look at things like internet safety and hygiene whilst older students focus on budgeting and cooking preparing them for university and beyond.
