Study Support Clubs
 
 
 
 
 

Study Support is a learning activity outside normal lessons which pupils at Madras can take part in voluntarily. Its purpose is to improve pupil's motivation, build their self-esteem and help them to become more responsible and effective learners. Above all it aims to raise achievement.

The clubs generally run during intervals, lunchtimes or after school and aim to provide pupils with the following opportunities:

  • catch up on work missed through absence,
  • extra time to work on SQA coursework which has not been completed in class or due to absence,
  • complete homework with support from teachers,
  • revision for tests and exams,
  • further explanation on areas of the course pupils are struggling with.

Below is a listing of the study support clubs being run around Madras College.
