Revision Information

As students get closer to the end of courses and into revision, it may well be that staff alert you to the fact that your child really must attend extra sessions to ensure the highest outcomes in their examinations. Some sessions will be open to all students and some students will be directed to attend particular sessions for additional support in more specific areas of their courses. Information about these sessions will be shared with students regularly. 

Students should revise regularly and there are a number of useful resources (linked below) including GCSEPod (downloadable podcasts), ActiveLearn Science and BBC Bitesize. FROG also has many useful revision resources, for instance, the Maths site has ZigZag papers which can be downloaded and completed; past papers and text books are also available on FROG for the Sciences and other qualifications.
