Masterclass Study Support Timetable
We have made some changes with regards to Study Support for this session. After each of our tracking and monitoring cycles, we aim to deliver a 'Masterclass' session for each subject and level. This is in addition to regular Study Support that staff offer.
The 'Masterclass' sessions are longer, more focused and in depth and run from 3.45pm until 6.30pm. This is based upon student feedback which highlighted the benefits of this model that was used in both Maths and English successfully last year. It should be noted that students will be fed during the 'Masterclass' session.
We would really appreciate your support in ensuring your son or daughter's attendance at these valuable sessions in order to consolidate and improve their work in preparation for SQA exams. The timetable for these 'Masterclass' sessions can be accessed by clicking on this link.
