Study Skills and Exams


We recognise that students do feel a pressure to achieve high grades and that this can be ongoing and ever present for some students over the course of many school years. We can work with students in a number of ways to help with this, both in terms of study skills and really effective exam preparation and in terms of developing strategies for managing the anxieties of a stressful situation. Some of this work takes place in 1:1 situations, some with a specialist and some in whole class teaching groups. This year two members of staff have been trained in mindfulness with a view to exploring ways that this might be effective with some students in the future.
