Helping my child with revision - where do I start?

Starting the revision process can seem like a mammoth task, so a little encouragement from a parent or carer can go a long way to helping your child make the right steps towards preparing for their exams.

Motivating and encouraging your child

Exam nerves and the prospect of revision can be daunting, which can lead to a lack of confidence and motivation. Here are some ideas on how you can help to lift your child's self esteem, and make the revision process more manageable.

Revision tips and techniques

Some of the best resources and ideas to help make your child's revision as effective and efficient as possible, including help with mind maps, plus using words and sounds to help retain important information.

Student revision and support groups

We run a number of subject-specific support groups throughout the week, as well as general careers advice. We encourage all year 11 students to take full advantage of these sessions while they are available to them.
