They will also be expected to do certain duties throughout the week such as break duties and class-room assistance.
THE HIGH SCHOOL ORGANISATION - The lessons are organised in thirty-five minutes’ schedules with double periods of seventy minutes for main subjects. All lessons begin and end with prayer. The High School begins the academic day in worship with Little Eden.
TESTS/REPORTS - Close supervision of the student's progress is maintained at all times. Internal tests – every three weeks and at both mid-term and end of term are conducted to ensure that each student is achieving satisfactory standards. Parents are expected to attend the twice-yearly parents' evening where they have the opportunity to discuss their pupil's progress. The staff prepares detailed termly records of progress and parents can view their child's records at any time, via an appointment. At the end of each term parents will receive a termly progress report.
HOMEWORK - Eden High School pupils receive homework in each subject every week. All pupils are required to hand in homework punctually. If the homework is late, pupils will be given a verbal warning and detention to complete the work or manual labour. Should pupils continue to submit late homework, parents will be informed and an appointment made to discuss and resolve the matter.
