Alongside successful teaching, we have recognised the importance of providing our students with strategies for successful revision. We understand that every student will learn in a different way, so we endeavour to equip our students with as many different approaches to revision as possible. It is hoped that through key events, such as our ‘Steps to Success’ evenings, we can also help parents to support their child when revising at home. Presented by our lead practitioners for teaching and learning, it is hoped that students and parents understand the necessary steps to help achieve deserved success.
There are certain website links that utilise the different revision strategies and exercises that have been shared with students and parents.
