History

GCSE Revision sessions are put on for students each Tuesday after school. Please speak to your class teacher for details.

Modern Foreign Languages

A commitment to independent study and revision is essential if students are to achieve the highest grade possible.  In addition to their text book, students will benefit from using a revision guide such as that published by CGP. 

Online vocab-learning tools such as Memrise and Quizlet can also be useful.  Past papers are available on the AQA website and will be shared with students.  It is imperative that students prepare for their Spanish GCSE over a prolonged period of time, rather than ‘cram’ for their exam at the last minute. 

Students should already be spending a couple of hours each week working through revision materials over and above any homework set in class. 

We would appreciate parents’ support in encouraging students to make the most of the resources detailed above.

Revision sessions are also put on by staff each Week 1 Wednesday, and Week 2 Tuesday at lunchtime in D13 and D14.

Religious Studies  

Students will be provided a set of past papers for each unit and some comprehensive revision materials.

All students have been issued a passport these outline the topic booster revision session they should attend. These are run Monday Tuesday and Wednesday in T01 at lunch time. They have been informed how many sessions to attend.
