The Study Hub

The Meden College management team were excited to welcome our new Year 12 cohort to the college last week. It was also nice to welcome back so many familiar faces for Year 13. The beginning of term was extra special this year because we were able to move into the first phase of our brand new College building - christened The Study Hub. I think the photographs below show just how special the space now looks. We now have a bespoke and modern area in which college students are able to carry out independent study whilst also getting support from their teachers and peers.
Over the next few weeks and months work will continue to convert a nearby room to a refreshment centre for students, and ultimately a glass covered atrium will connect the two areas. Photographs of these exciting developments will be posted regularly, and details of the official opening will follow in due course.

attitude to learning

All schools evaluate the progress the students are making in terms of their grades, however at Meden we also place great emphasis on student's 'Attitude to Learning' or ATL.

What does ATL mean?

A student is given a score of 1,2,3 or 4 for each subject based on a number of factors which are shown in the table below. An average of these scores represents a students total ATL. An average score of 1 is the best score a student can get and an average score of 4 is the worst. Most students will get a score somewhere between the two and hopefully as low as possible to show the best ATL.

ATL reports are uploaded to INSIGHT at regular points throughout the years so that you may see how your child is doing. Achievement assemblies are held every half term to celebrate the highest ATL scores as well as the most improved students.
