Revision Guides for Students and Parents

Parent News

We have produced two GCSE Revision Guides for our students and parents. The Student Revision Guide is packed with useful advice for students about the exams they are about to sit – how to prepare, what to expect, and what you need. The Parent Revision Guide provides parents with advice about how to support your child, plus there is information for students which parents should try to share with them.

The Year 11 students will each receive both Revision Guides and they are encouraged to read them both Guides carefully several times during their exam preparation. Parents are also advised to read both Guides too so that they know what to expect, understand how their child may be feeling and experiencing, and how best to support their child in the days and weeks leading up to the summer exam period.

These Revision Guides are also available as interactive PDFs to view online or to download. They are available on our Exams page, along with other vital exam information.

Revision Universals – helping you to revise more effectively

Revision Universals – helping you to revise more effectively

Parent News

Our Head of History, Dr Hall, delivered two sessions to Year 11 students during a conference which were developed as a guide to effective revision strategies. The ‘mantra’ for the strategy is O.M.G:

  1. Organise: use headings and subheadings to chunk revision into manageable pieces
  2. Minimise: reduce revision to the essential knowledge (don’t waffle) whilst retaining the ‘sense’ of what you’re revising
  3. Graft: Get Going

Below is the PowerPoint presentation which Dr Hall used to teach the students how to implement the strategy so that they can improve their perfomance throughout this summer’s GCSE exam period.

BUG The Question

BUG The Question

Exams Information

We don’t want to tick you off or get a bee sting from anyone with this post. However this technique really sticks in(sect) our heads!! Team Geography showed us how to BUG questions and it has really helped some of our students unlock what the question is actually asking and gain a few extra marks in exams. We think it works because it is very simple. So, try it for yourself!
