Supervised Study

colourful-books 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. Supervised Study 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 quiet, 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 via post if students are not making effective use of their time.

Please read the rules which govern study prior to application and note that Supervised study will not take place on days where Parent-Teacher meetings or Staff meetings take place. Thhas made contact via the emaille school reserves the right to cancel study during extreme weather events and when school authorities deem appropriate. All changes to the study schedule will be available on this page.

Supervised Study Update September 24th 2020:

Having investigated the interest in beginning Supervised Study next week, we regret that we are not in a position to offer study for this session.
We shall review the interest for a November/December session again in a few weeks around mid-term.

Please email to register your interest detailing the student’s name and class. Please be advised that study is restricted to junior cycle and leaving certificate students until further notice.


The school reserves the right to refuse students access to supervised study.
