Independent Learning, Homework & Research

All students have independent learning tasks set every week and are expected to undertake tasks and homework.  In our Halls of Residence, independent learning is timetabled as study periods on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings.  Those who live with host families will need to plan for at least five evenings per week.  As a guide, the weekly hours of independent learning for each course are as follows:

A Levels (both years) 5 hours minimum per subject per week

Pre-A Level 2-3 hours per subject per week

Foundation 2-3 hours per subject per week
