Welcome to CLASS


What do we do in CLASS?

The move from school to college can be daunting and involves taking on more advanced skills. It requires a different way of thinking about your studies and taking responsibility for the progress of your learning. Similar to an athlete, a student will need to reflect, analyse, and drive improvement to become an elite student. By identifying your key areas for further development, you can move forward to your next success, they may include; improving grades by following
teacher feedback, improving your extended writing skills or challenging yourself to build your confidence.

With the help of qualified professionals, you will be able to identify, and work on, the specific skills of your chosen subjects. All the work that you do in CLASS will be subject related and help you to achieve success.

You will work on your own individual targets within a relaxed workshop setting. The targets may include; extended writing skills, understanding your assignments and essay questions, understanding and using subject terminology and managing your workload.

When will my CLASS lesson be?

You may refer yourself or one of your teachers, or your tutor, may suggest that your grades could improve if you have a CLASS lesson on your timetable. CLASS will help you find a suitable time when you are not in lesson.

TR Active

TR Active is a programme of activities, held at lunchtime and after college.
It will enrich your TRC experience by developing confidence, helping you socialise with new friends creating the opportunity to challenge yourself and encouraging positive mental health.
