Study Skills

Study Skills is an introductory programme that helps students bridge the gap from GCSE to A levels. It’s a bit of a cliché, and it is frequently said, that the jump from GCSE to A levels is a big one. If you can master the techniques of study at a higher level than you have before, you will have a better chance of getting the grades you want. 
Sessions are fortnightly until just after Christmas, after this point we expect that you will have accomplished the skills that you need to succeed and you gain an extra private study session.
