The Learning Support department is led by Mrs Cook and there is a team of Teaching Assistants who are based in the Learning Pod but spend most of the time supporting students in lessons. During mentor time, students come to the Learning Pod if they need support and practice with reading, handwriting or keyboard skills. In addition a Homework Club operates after school until 3.45pm Monday – Thursday for any student who wishes to have some support with homework tasks.
In Year 7 some students are taught in small group for all their core subject lessons in the Learning Pod. This is to help with transition and help those students make rapid progress before being integrated into the mainstream lessons.
