A network of study centres is to be launched by the Prince of Wales Prince's Trust to help children who have to do their homework in noisy or cramped conditions, the Independent (p5) and Radio 4's Today programme reported today.

Radio 4 featured a school in Newham where children stayed after school in quiet areas to do their homework because at home they had limited space and in the case of girls in particular had to help with the housework and look after other children.

The Independent says that research commissioned by the Trust has shown pilot schemes in eight schools have helped improve exam results as well as giving pupils a new belief that schools is worthwhile.
