Dear Parent/Carer Additional Study Opportunities Please find details overleaf of the additional study opportunities that our teachers offer Senior Phase students. Our Senior Phase is arranged in such a way that teachers are able to fully cover all course requirements within the class time that they have. However, selected students sometimes benefit from additional support outside class time and tracking reports often identify students who would benefit from such input. We are delighted that so many of our staff are able to work around family and workload commitments in order to make this support available for young people. Do please now have a conversation with your child about the additional study sessions that they are currently attending and any other classes that are on offer that they may benefit from participation in. Yours sincerely Gavin Clark Headteacher
