All students belong to a Learning Family, supported by a Learning Guide. The Learning Guide gets to know the young person’s interests, skills, talents and needs. The Learning Guide works with the student and parents/carers to personalise their learning, helping them choose the right courses and ensuring they develop the skills needed for effective learning. The members of a Learning Family support and guide each other, sharing experiences and knowledge. We especially see the benefit of students encouraging one another and believe this peer support motivates the students to succeed.
