You cannot open a book without learning something.” ― Confucius
At Mercy Mounthawk, we strongly recommend Supervised Study. It is very important for students to develop the habit of study if they are to reach their full potential.
Supervised Study is available to all students at Mercy Mounthawk. It provides a valuable opportunity, under the guidance of our experienced teachers, for students to discipline themselves and to concentrate on homework and revision in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Mercy Mounthawk prides itself in the standard of supervision offered to all who attend. Our supervisors will not tolerate any form of misbehaviour and parents are contacted if students are not making effective use of their time.
Supervised Study is currently available for both two and three hour sessions from Monday to Friday (inclusive), each week during the school term.
The fees for the next session of Supervised Study which will commence on Monday 15th January 2018 and end on Thursday 31st May 2018 are:
