To support students to revise effectively for linear examinations, opportunities are planned to ensure that students can learn a range of revision strategies and explore which work for them.
A Study Skills Deep Learning Day explores revision techniques and revision resources. Students look at approaches including:
- Note taking
- Mind mapping
- Graphic organisers
- Revision cards
- Use of past examination papers
We also remind students of the importance of actively engaging with the materials being revised. Subject specific revision resources are available to all students through our virtual learning environment, Frog.
Other resources the school make available to support revision include PiXL and GCSE Pod. A parent login is issued to parents of each student to allow them to access revision tools and assessments. Please contact the school if you require further guidance. GCSEPod includes a range of subject specific podcasts which can be filtered by examination specification.
All students receive passwords to access these resources. Should parents / carers require further support with these, please contact your child’s House Pastoral Manager. GCSEPod parent support guides are available to download below.
