This page aims to support the information that will be sent home via class teachers about the exam specifications that students are following - and teachers do provide a wealth of information to students about revision, the format of the exam, tackling exam questions and detail about the specification being taught.

Sometimes there are published revision guides which have been produced and tailored especially for the specification of a particular exam board. Sometimes there are only generic revision guides available. Subject teachers will advise students about this in class. For some subjects (Maths and D&T subjects) the school buys in revision guides for students to purchase or borrow. In those cases that Department will write to parents offering them the opportunity to purchase the guides. 

Subject by Subject Revision Advice

There is a detailed Revision Guide called "A Parent's Guide to Revision Resources" available in the Downloads section which gives a subject by subject summary of revision advice from our teaching staff. However, if you have subject specific queries which are not answered by either the guide or information sent home by your child's class teacher then do please feel free to contact the school. The class teacher is the best person to contact in the first instance but the Exams Office can be reached either via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone on extension 263 on the school's number.
