Providing various group sessions in the CFL on exam preparation, test-taking, time-management and study skills at scheduled times throughout the year

Encouraging any student to visit the CFL; Opening times are posted for boys at the Prep School and forms to schedule an appointment are on the board outside the CFL offices at the Upper School

Planning programs and support for parents to help them understand the many issues around learning styles and differences, with a focus on boys and learning
