Study website for our senior students

The website contains tips for time management, note-taking, wellbeing and extended research, as well as providing a list of apps that may be useful for students. Forms are downloadable so students can create their own timetables and calendars.

The expectations for students in timetabled study groups are outlined on the homepage. In 2019, all study lessons will be timetabled into the Green section of the Library, which has been redesigned to optimise quiet study and small-group learning.

The website will be a living document, so suggestions from students, teachers and parents are welcome. We encourage our students, especially if they are studying for the HSC, to utilise the resources we have gathered for the site. 

A new website to complement our senior study program, Ten Percent On Top (TPOT), is now online.
