Bishopbriggs Academy S4 Support Programme

Bishopbriggs Academy offers a wide range of support to pupils in all year groups through a number of initiatives such as Supported Study, the Assertive Mentoring Programme, Easter Revision classes and workshops such as Tree of Knowledge and Live and Learn.
 
In S4, pupils are offered assistance to develop a range of exam and study skills.  In addition, a number of pupils are offered a place on the S4 Assertive Mentoring Programme.  This helps these pupils to identify target subjects where they are not achieving their full potential and to meet weekly with a mentor over six weeks to identify areas for improvement. This programme can have a major impact of a pupil's SQA results.  A presentation on study skills, exam techniques, the Assertive Mentoring Programme and how parents/carers can support their child can be viewed here.
