“Study Zone” and Study Support Programme

In addition to the weekly programme of Study Support offered to students (Senior Study Support Programme, 2017-18) all S4-6 students are invited to attend “Study Zone” in the lead-up to Prelim and SQA exams. During Study Zone, students can either go to after-school support sessions with particular teachers or can go to the library to use it as a quiet study area. In previous years Study Zone has been very popular and has received very positive feedback from students. We are encouraging all Senior students to attend.
