Learning culture – from dependence to independence

Your son/daughter has come to college primarily to further their learning. They should make the most of trying to study more independently.

There is a high correlation between hard work, attendance, personal organisation and final results.

Students should make good use of ‘private study time’: Study area; learning hub; library; it rooms; unused classrooms; home.

Homework will be set at least weekly in most subjects and work should be done in preparation for the formal recorded assessments to ensure that your son/daughter reaches at least their target level. Reading round each subject, making extra notes, reviewing notes, making revision aids and extra research are all things that can be done out of formal classes and on top of the formal homework set.
