Revision

Thorough revision is an important ingredient of examination success.

The skill of revising effectively is developed over a child's time in secondary school. One of the purposes of internal examinations is for students to explore different strategies to revise and hone their technique.

Revision materials supplied by departments will be placed on FROG; each student has his/her own log-in.

Year 11 Revision Support Programme and Key Dates 2018

Year 11 students have received details of GCSE after-school revision sessions running in school during the spring term 2018.

  • Each subject will run an after-school session beginning on Monday 15th January on a fortnightly basis.
  • The subjects have been timetabled so that there are no clashes for students.
  • Each subject will provide 1 session per fortnight.
  • The menu will change each fortnight and details will be emailed and placed on the website so that students and parents are aware of which subjects and topics are on any given evening.
  • We have avoided Wednesday as these are used for staff meetings, staff training and parents evenings.

The letter to parents emailed home on 12 January 2018 provides more information about the types of revision session we are providing.
