Parents

SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE DURING EXAMS

We recognise that good support from family is intrinsic to exam success for our students. This section of the site is designed to offer practical advice for parents and carers, so that you are well equipped to help your child manage and prepare for all aspects of the examination process.

How to support your child’s revision?

The secret to doing well in exams lies in planning. We have attached some materials which will help to do this. Please use these materials to help your child to create a clear revision plan and method of studying that will make them feel in control of their work.
