The Friends’ School recognises that reaching Years 11 and 12 does not mean that additional educational needs disappear.

Study Support is an option for students with identified additional learning needs. Students are usually offered one session per week (although it can be more, if timetabling allows).

This is staffed by a Learning Support teacher who will work with the student to develop and maintain good study strategies, assist with planning and organisation and be available to provide feedback or additional support with core content.

Clemes also offers timetabled Study Skills time to provide opportunities for more specific support in the areas of Mathematics, Science and English. This is available as an elective for any student at Clemes.


Yourtutor is an online interactive homework support service to which the school subscribes. It provides an ‘out of hours’ individualised connection to specialist tutors who respond to queries that arise whilst doing homework. The service is available six evenings a week from 3.00pm until 10.00pm, including school holidays. The service provides support for all subject areas and is suitable for all levels, including Year 12.
