Friday sessions run (and recorded) to allow students to gain additional examination preparation and support.

Coursework & Exam Support:
Staff in the department offer a drop in session after school for students wishing to discuss a specific area or homework, or wanting support with exam preparation. After Christmas, Year 11s are offered a minimum of one topic-specific revision session per week after school. These follow a programme tailored to the Language and Literature GCSEs and are written alongside the school curriculum in order to ensure maximum impact to learning. Key revision videos will be made available on the ‘Year 11 English’ classroom for all students to watch as part of their revision schedule alongside exam focused revision resources.
