Academic

The Summer gives students and teachers a chance to unwind after the exam season but also an opportunity to prepare for the next academic year. Boakye’s ‘I Heard What You Said’ analyses how we can dismantle racism in the classroom and do better by all our students – one to be discussed in every staffroom. Now is the time to brush up on study skills, current laws or new nursing practices- not forgetting to also enjoy a little fun in the sun.
