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 2022 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 subject has intervention running after school and on some Saturday mornings. For Year 11, intervention may run from 3.10pm to 4.10pm (4:10pm to 5:10pm on Tuesday and Wednesday) after school and 9.00am to 12.00pm on a Saturday.  

Year 11 are also placed into Curriculum Catch-Up 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. These sessions run Tuesday to Friday in place of tutor time and provide approximately two extra hours of teaching time per week. Students will be placed into these groups based on their academic progress.
