Exams are becoming a significantly more important part of a student’s overall mark and, from 2017, most subjects will be 100% examination. Whilst we do all we can at the school to provide outstanding lessons, after school revision and support materials, students will not achieve their full potential without revising in their own time.
On this page you can find useful links to websites that help with revision at A level. We encourage all students and parents to use this guidance to prepare and manage a thorough revision schedule during exam periods and are happy to offer further support in planning this if needed. Our examinations officer is Miss Kelvie (email@example.com) and our sixth form study supervisor is Mrs Cheval (firstname.lastname@example.org).
