Learning Support Newsletter

This term has flown by and has been another busy term. With the reintroduction of face-to-face learning, students and teachers alike have shown great enthusiasm for being back in class and fully appreciating the classrooms. This term has been especially busy for the Entry Level students across different subjects, who have been working very hard on final assessments and coursework to be submitted for accreditation this summer. We wish them all the best with their final submissions. And best of luck also to our Year 11 students who are taking GCSE exams now! Please read HERE the learning support newsletter.
