Glasgow City Council Welcome to Shawlands Academy

Information for Parents

 Parental Study skills workshops

 

At Shawlands Academy we like to work closely with parents and carers to help our pupils reach their full potential.  Over the next year we will be holding a range of study skills workshops to give you tips and ideas about how best to support and help your child further improve their study and homework habits. 

 

Good study skills can be learned which means they can be practised and improved upon in order that pupils learn more effectively, are less stressed and perform better in lessons and examinations.
