Developing lifelong study habits is a vital skill for all students. Independent learning is key to securing great outcomes and developing skills of resourcefulness and resilience. Please find a list below outlining the ways that students can embed skills and knowledge outside of the classroom:

  • Completing homework and any outstanding work set on Google Classroom
  • Downloading and practising past exam papers
  • Downloading and checking the curriculum content from their subjects
  • Making use of GCSE Pod (see below) - where they will find short clips which help to reinforce and embed subject knowledge as well as webinars for exam preparation
  • Using Brainscapes to make online flashcards
  • Using the subject recommended online learning platforms, which can be accessed here
  • Attending after school revision sessions - 2023/24 timetable
  • Making use of the after school study club (see here for times)
  • Engaging with the Beyond the Classroom activities on our website
