Need help with your homework?

A plea from Homework Help

In exam season and out of season, Homework Help continues to... well, help people with their homework!
If you'd like help or can offer help, please leave a message or contact homework@sedgefielddevelopmenttrust.co.uk - even if we are in the last half-term before the summer holidays. We particularly need some short-term help with KS3 English and maths but knowledge in any subject is always good to add to our repertoire.

Homework Help was launched in January 2018 and one year on Homework Help continues, and there is room for more students as well as more helpers!
We are also looking to set up sessions in Fishburn and possibly Trimdon. If you would like to request help with homework or careers guidance, or to volunteer, email: homework@sedgefielddevelopmenttrust.co.uk or find us on Facebook

What is Homework Help?

Homework Help consists of a growing team of volunteers keen to help students and pupils make progress with their understanding of their homework and school work, and build confidence in their abilities. We aim to help them to take further steps towards achieving their potential, however large or small those steps, and to help make firmer the foundations on which their future educations builds.

Typically, a student, or a small group of students with similar requirements, is matched with a suitable volunteer. Groups meet in Sedgefield town library, on Front Street, at a variety of different times to suit the individuals involved, usually on a Thursday or Friday evening. (Many thanks to Katie, Gary and other library staff for facilitating this, and making PCs and WiFi available to us).

We cover Year 10 through to Upper Sixth Form. We also have volunteers experienced in careers guidance, in helping to preparing university applications and interviews, and in essay writing. However, if the subject in which you are interested is not in this list, or you want help with a different year group, do get in touch with us anyway, and we'll do our best to find a helper.


If your subject of interest is not here, get in touch with us anyway, and we'll do our best to find a helper - or volunteer to help in a new area.
