Kingsbury
High School

We know that students can often perform well at GCSE yet still need to develop their study skills.

Tutorial Scheme

Your tutor will work through a programme of academic skills and BTEC students will have a specialist tutor to work through organisational skills to manage coursework deadlines. We also use material developed by two former Heads of Sixth Form:

We use a company to help develop study skills including how to improve recall.

Maximise Study Skills

 We also use a motivational and broader approach to study skills which draws on the behaviours of successful people in the world of academia, sport, politics and business. Ex BBC presenter, Jeremy Dry, delivers an amazing session to help students with their studies as well as give you the courage to get your foot in the door of major employers.
