How learning is structured
Each week you will have 25 lessons.
You should expect to do around an hour of homework each evening. Different subjects will set homework on different days and you’ll know the schedule of this in September so that you can organise your week.
In Year 7 you will be in a mixed class with students with different strengths and from a whole range of primary schools. You will be in the same class for ALL your subjects. Your class may change later in Year 7 and then in Year 8 and 9 depending on how you do in these subjects.
This is the 30 minutes each day you spend with your coach and coaching group. This group is DIFFERENT to your subject classes, but it doesn’t change. You’ll be part of this coaching group all the way to the end of your time at HGAED! You’ll get to know your coaching group really well and in these 30 minutes sessions each week you will do Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), assemblies, reading and have the chance to discuss any general questions/concerns with your coach.
