S4 STUDY GROUP: GET SET FOR EXAM SUCCESS

S4 pupils are invited to take part in a weekly after-school study group in the library. The group will be led by Mr McCabe (DHT and S4 Year Head) and will be a chance for pupils to get help on any subject - Art, Business, Maths, Physics, English; complete homework, or simply study in a quiet, supervised environment with study resources available.

To begin with the group will run for 4 weeks. The first session will be on Wednesday, 8th of February in the library from 3:30pm.
