Posted in News & Press  ·  July 5th 2016

Upton Hall School FCJ a Roman Catholic grammar school for girls aged 11-18, recently conceived an imaginative week of study skills and  ‘growth mindset’ initiative for all 950 students and also 200 parents!

Upton Hall is the top performing school on Merseyside and is one of the top performing schools in the country. It is repeatedly judged outstanding by Ofsted.The results of the study skills week were extraordinary and the following is an extract from the School’s own website:

“Upton pupils and parents learn the skills for success!”

Recently we held an intensive study skills week in conjunction with Study Skills Zone.  Each year group participated in a personalised session which  looked to promote lifelong study techniques which will help them to  fulfil their academic potential.

“These sessions were hugely successful and proved to be a great hit with pupils from Years 7-13.  We will be holding this intensive study week as an annual event, with each year group following a 7-year progressive programme which will allow the girls to develop effective study habits.”

“Throughout the week over 200 parents attended ‘Parent Power’ sessions with the aim of empowering them to support their daughter in their quest for excellence.  Each parent walked away from the session with a wealth of  knowledge and relevant literature to enable them to support their daughter’s study techniques at home.”
