Community Hour & Learning Conversations

Community Hour and Learning Conversations are compulsory timetabled lessons/meetings on all Year 12 and 13 student timetables.

Community hour

Community Hour takes place weekly, on Mondays P5 (1:35-2:35pm). 

Some weeks will be targeted for specific students and you will be informed if you are in or working independently.

Non attendance will affect your overall attendance figure.

Students will need to bring their laptops (with charge) each week in order to make the most of these sessions.

Learning converstaions

Learning Conversations are a timetabled meeting with your Learning Coach.

These are timetabled to take place once a week in the morning, in zone 6 (8.20-8.40am), and will show on your timetable, as with all lessons including Community Hour. 

These sessions are the perfect opportunity for you to have professional discussions with your Learning Coach, getting help and advise on a 1-to-1 or small group basis. Students will need to bring their laptops (with charge) each week in order to make the most of these sessions.
