Independent Learning

At Sir John Cass 6th Form College we promote Independent Learning as an integral part of the successful transition from Key Stage 4 to Key Stage 5.  All students are expected to make full use of the Independent Learning Facilities we have.  These include;

  • The 6th Form Independent Learning centre
  • The VLE (Virtual Learning Environment)
  • 6th Form Library
A strong emphasis is placed on students making full use of their study periods.  This includes a number of tasks in which students are encouraged to develop their study skills through timekeeping, planning, note taking, skim reading, referencing and proof reading – all essential skills for advanced level study.
