There will be an opportunity every Friday at 3pm for parents to meet with the lead tutor for feedback and advice. Teens will be given a timetable showing exactly what work will be covered each week as well as what homework will be needed. Students will use a log book in order for parents, teens, and tutors to keep in touch each week.

Friday 28th September at 10am.

It may be possible for students to move through more than one level of English and maths with parental support, homework and independent study. This will be explained in detail to parents and teens at the meeting with the directors.
