Catch Up Literacy and Numeracy

Mrs Armstrong-Ashton and Miss Heather Hicks have been running the successful catch up programme in literacy and numeracy this year.

The programme involves on to one and small group tuition for students who arrive in year 7 lacking confidence in either of these subjects.

Students found that this intense level of intervention really helps them to make up ground and begin to understand some of the concepts that they struggled with at primary.
