Hints and Tips for Helping with Homework and Exam Preparation

Homework is varied and offers students personalisation and choice.  Within S1 & S2 students have homework which is linked with their topics but which also include cross curricular activities.  Students are encouraged to complete their homework on time and hand in the best work they can.  Parents are requested to support and sign any homework.

There are lessons for students on study technique, learning styles, timetabling study and the creating the correct atmosphere for studying.
