The Study Plus approach
Study Plus is an approach that has been developed by the Secondary National Strategy to improve the GCSE results of a target group of pupils. Schools decide to timetable Study Plus for one or more groups of pupils in Key Stage 4 and design a course to improve their English and/or mathematics with strong links to work in other subjects. There is support through training and a pack of materials all of which can be accessed through this web site.
The Study Plus pilot project with about 125 schools is now in its second year, but the approach is now available to all schools and around 420 schools started Study Plus in September 2007.
