Exam Preparation

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


Revision guides and tips

Our teachers have prepared some subject-by-subject revision resources to help you prepare for your exams. You can also download our revision tips presentation (pdf) to help you prepare for your exams. 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.


Exam preparation schedule

You will be able to download the exam preparation schedule for summer 2019 from here along with the letter to parents/carers about GCSE exam preparation. This schedule will be a bespoke timetable covering the school day and after-school intervention classes. 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, Thursday and Friday, and 4.10-5.10pm Tuesday and Wednesday.

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.
