Question. Do your Y12 and Y13 have to go to a supervised room or library for their 'free' periods? The reason I ask is that I work in a state boarding school. At the moment we allow most of the sixth form to go to their boarding accommodation to work. Unfortunately this does not always happen. (Unsurprisingly!) For many of the better students, the benefit of independent learning is plain to see, however our VA at A level is awful, when our VA at KS4 is REALLY good. I want to get our Y12 and 13 into supervised study (other than by exception).
