Homework Club & Study Support

  • Is your child struggling in the classroom?
  • Do they need one-on-one support and homework help to bring them up to speed?
  • Is your child turning homework into a battle ground?
  • Do they need help managing their workload?

ASK Homework Club and Study Support Programme is an after-school programme for young people aged 6 to 16, to support them with literacy and numeracy issues and to make doing their homework a little less stressful for them and their parents.

Qualified teachers and assistants provide personalised support based on each child’s key needs – ratio 1 to 3.  Sessions include time for completing school homework as well as time for individual work on either a computer-based programme or one-on-one reading or paired reading.
