Mr Terence Nunes, Head of Year 10
Year 10 students learnt new strategies and techniques to help them with their GCSE studies and exam preparation at an excellent workshop on Monday 7 March.
The session, led by Adrian from leading study skills specialist Learning Performance, was highly interactive and covered the use of mnemonics, retrieval practice, the Feynman Technique, imagery, mind maps and more.
We were delighted so many parents were able to take part in the session, which was also designed to help them support their daughters in the lead up to exams.
As you see below, feedback from students was very positive. They are already putting these new skills into practice as they approach their upcoming Year 10 exams.

"This experience was very enjoyable and enabled me to think outside the box to retain information while revising." – Sephora
“I had assumed the workshop would look at content we were all acquainted with, but there was lots new to me, such as active recall and splitting the time. It was extremely beneficial, and I am going to use some of the techniques to prepare for my upcoming exams. I was pleased that our teachers arranged this workshop, and I hope there are more in the future.” – Clara
