The College also operates a study centre which is located in the College Library.
From Monday to Thursday starting at 3:30 pm and finishing at 4:30 pm this program allows Secondary students to have a place where they can study in a quiet environment with access to study resources.
Some parents who are unable to collect their son or daughter before the supervision duty is finished have them in the study centre. Students are expected to use this time for study or homework, not for socialising.
Secondary Teachers also run subject-specific clubs during study centre to assist students in their subject area, days vary for these clubs.
