Super students spend Saturdays at schoolPosted: 25th February 2020
Super students are making the most of their spare time – by doing extra study at school.
Year 7 students at Forest Hall School are giving up part of their weekend to attend Super Saturday sessions.
The extra lessons enable the youngest students to get additional support in English and maths where needed.
The three-week programme will give every student in the year group an opportunity to brush up on their core subjects to ensure they are in the best position to take on their GCSE courses in Year 9.
Kayleigh Trainor, assistant head, said: “It is wonderful to see the Super Saturday programme in action.
“Teachers planned the sessions to ensure we are continuing to challenge and support students with their learning. They are taking part in activities to develop their numeracy and literacy skills, to build their confidence in those subjects and to develop key skills ready for them to take on their GCSEs. The idea is that by the end of Year 7, they are ready to access the Year 8 curriculum in maths and English.
“Our students have grown in confidence in both their literacy and numeracy and this is reflected in their classwork. They have love it and attendance has been amazing.
“The programme is a key element we are keen to develop within Forest Hall and build on the successes of what we have already established.”
Students completing the Super Saturday course will be taken on a reward trip.
