Some exciting new Geography revision resources are available to support your child with the GCSE Geography course. These additional resources have been recently released by CGP and are in addition to the CGP GCSE Geography revision guide and workbook you can already purchase via SCOPAY. These particular resources will support your child with exam and retrieval practice. I am able to supply these resources for a reduced cost compared to online prices and those in bookshops and will be placing an order so that students will have the resource ready for the next mock exams. I have copies of the resources available if your child would like to view them before making a purchase. If you would like to buy any of these resources, please could you pay for them via SCOPAY by midday Friday 28th January.  Once payment has been received we will place the order.  No orders will be accepted after the deadline.
