Intervention Sessions

In order to support students as they work towards their exams at the end of Year 11, we have introduced intervention sessions. This means that we would encourage students to think of their school day as running from 8:30am – 4:20pm each day. At 3:30pm, students will have the option to either;

  • attend support sessions ran by subject teachers 
  • work independently in the LRC

The aim of the intervention sessions is to enable students to have access to staff for more individualised support as well as encouraging them to develop their independence in preparing for their exams.
