Alfie is our playground king after beating Mr Smith on our new mega board. "This was the first time I've played Mr Smith," says Alfie. "It was a bit of an achievement for me. I knew he'd be a challenge." Top work, Alfie! https://t.co/bjAij6pDwK

Exam Preparation

Adequate preparation for your GCSEs and organised revision sessions will help you achieve the best from your time.  


Revision guides and tips

To help you, our teachers have prepared some subject-by-subject revision resources to help you prepare you for the GCSEs. Download our revision tips presentation (pdf). Find out which techniques work and which don't!

To help you plan your revision we've also created a sample revision timetable to show what one might look like, and a blank revision timetable which you can download and complete.

Download a letter to parents about Year 11 exam preparation.


Exam preparation schedule - Summer 2018

You will be able to download the exam preparation schedule for summer 2018 from here along with the letter to parents/carers about GCSE exam preparation. This schedule is a bespoke timetable covering the school day and after-school intervention classes which will begin from May 2018. This schedule maximises the time that each pupil gets with their class teachers of particular subjects at a critical point during the exam season.


Revision and progress intervention

GCSE revision support or interventions for Year 11 run throughout the year. Each learning hub has revision and progress intervention running after school. For Year 11 they run from 3.10-4.10pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and 4.10-5.10pm Tuesday and Thursday.

Year 11 are also placed into intervention tutor groups in order to maximise the time they have with subject specialist teachers. These groups focus on key aspects of the specification and assessment requirements in addition to the general Year 11 tutor programme. Pupils are currently working in EBacc subject groups plus vocational courses, depending on their current progress. These groups remain fluid and are reviewed every half term. 

These interventions will be run by teaching staff from each hub and will focus on progress or preparation for GCSE exams. Parents will be informed through the use of pupil intervention passes distributed weekly to your child.
