Message from Wernham West Centre for Learning

The Wernham West Centre for Learning (CFL) offers support throughout the year for boys to develop their “tool kit” for learning.

In order to support students through the exam preparation and process, the CFL’s approach is to link how to best study and prepare for tests. Therefore, much of the exam preparation helps boys develop study habits and strategies that will be helpful day to day.

As exams approach, here are the times available for boys to: prioritize areas where they may need to seek extra help (i.e. a concept in math); develop a study plan; develop subject specific study strategies; and receive additional support in other areas such as how to stay motivated and focused, answer multiple choice questions, write short essay answers and manage feelings of anxiousness.
