From Year 7 to 9, students will have Current Affairs lessons that emphasises on discussion, debate, and presentation skills. The homework burden is also light to make lessons fun and engaging.
In Sixth Form, lessons are more independent, discussion-based and tutorial-style to allow more in-depth study.
