I would strongly advise that your child attends as many sessions as possible in order to achieve their full potential in the exam. Independent revision is also key to gaining high grades. We would recommend that your child:

– Attends the appropriate revision session – these will become compulsory for anyone who is currently underperforming after February half-term.

– Accessing the LRC at break and lunchtime to do research/independent revision/wider reading.

– Accessing wider reading on the internet. Some suggested sites are:

Thank you in anticipation of your support.
