Preparation for mocks and the summer GCSEs
The school recently introduced “exam preparation support sessions” that run after school. These replace the old “revision support” sessions because it is vital for students to distinguish between exam support in school as opposed to the revision they should be doing at home.
Revision is about:
- revisiting topics you have already been taught
- working out the gaps in your own knowledge
- devising a way that works for you to make sure you can recall that information in an exam
Exam preparation in school is about:
- reinforcing learning
- looking at revision styles
- looking at exam tips and techniques
- reviewing exemplar answers
To enable all parents and carers to best support their child we are running Exam Support Seminars on a choice of two dates in November and will be repeating these again in the Spring.
All parents and carers are invited to attend one of the seminars where they will learn about:
- revision techniques to support their child
- what resources their child can access online
- strategies to manage exam stress
- how best to help their child
Please don’t forget that your child’s subject teachers, their tutor and their Head of Year are all available to support you in the build up to the final exams.
