Scholar for S4/5/6 Students

On Thursday all students in S4/5/6 were emailed a Scholar Login with their username and password and some instructions to help them access Scholar.  To login visit www.scholar.hw.ac.uk.  When they login they should see all the courses they are enrolled for at the correct level.  Not every course is available on Scholar.  This means that some students where their curriculum does not involve any subjects that are available on Scholar will not have an account. You can check which courses are available here:  https://scholar.hw.ac.uk/why.html#availableCourses

If there are any queries about access then please ask students to contact Mr White.

If you are unsure how to navigate Scholar and would like some help then you can watch this helpful video: https://youtu.be/IB0fqQyTLas

This is a really valuable resource for students and we would ask for your support in encouraging them to use this to support their studies
