Homework Club

After School Homework Club
For a variety of reasons, we appreciate that some of our students may wish to stay after school to complete their homework or coursework using the school computers, application software and internet access.

To accommodate this requirement, we make the CDAC (Community Data Access Centre) available where staff are on hand to help when required. This facility is made available every afternoon for one hour after school.

We are very proud of the Centre which forms one of the central hubs of the school. Please see the photographs above which show the CDAC, its resources and some of the students taking advantage of the Homework Club. 

This service is welcomed by parents and pupils alike and we regularly have 30 to 40 students taking advantage of the facilities.

Breakfast Club
Every morning before School we run a Breakfast Club to give pupils an opportunity to carry out homework and coursework in CDAC.

The programme each morning is as follows:- 

7.45 - 8.00 a.m.     Breakfast (which is free) served in room T4.
8.00 - 8.30 a.m.     Use of the computers, books and the Study Area in CDAC with staff ready to help.

Our Breakfast Club has proved to be a very popular way to start the day with many students.  We are very fortunate to have the financial support of the Southend Youth Council.

The Centre houses 34 networked PCs, and in excess of 14,000 books with a quiet comfortable reading area on the mezzanine floor. An orderly atmosphere is maintained at all times.  All students become members of the Centre when joining the school and are entitled to borrow two books at a time for a period of two weeks.  Eating and drinking are not permitted in the CDAC and any students doing so will be asked to leave.
