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.
Year 11 in particular benefit from a bespoke revision initiative that takes place from February until the beginning of exams in May - Revision Plus. Students are given a timetable that includes three after school revision sessions in addition to their normal timetable. Due to the tenacity and commitment of teaching staff this initiative continues to run each year and results in more positive outcomes for our young people. Students that have experienced the initiative say that it is very valuable.
We also remind students of the importance of actively engaging with the materials being revised. Subjects have specific revision resources that are available through various mediums depending on who provides the best material for our young people.
