Part-Time Work

This should be kept to a minimum, as extensive research has provided evidence that more than 8 hours per week of paid work has a detrimental effect on student’s progress and final results.

It is advisable to drop part-time work altogether, if possible, on the approach to examinations. If students exceed this limit they will be putting their results in jeopardy. The Sixth Form programme is very busy and students will soon find themselves fully occupied and struggling with deadlines should they fail to devote the appropriate time to their studies.
