What we provide: 

  • Supervised Study at all times by all qualified secondary school teachers.
  • No mobile phones- all students will place their phones in our very own ‘mobile home unit’ area during all sessions in the pouch number that corresponds with their desk number.
  • Computer area and canteen area for breaks (including a bean bag chill out area) 
  • An educational based library of resources for students to use on site; students must return the resources when finished using them so they can be shared with others

Students are encouraged to bring their own food and fruit/healthy snacks to keep them focused and there is a fresh water fountain on site to fill up water bottles.

There is also a fridge and a toaster that students can avail of if needs be.
