Revision Support

Welcome to our ‘Springwest Survival Kit’ revision support page. On this page you will find information and guidance from a range of teachers and subjects.  All Year 11 students have been introduced to the Pomodoro revision technique: 4x 20 minutes of targeted revision with a 5 minute break in between. This is followed by a longer break at the end. There are Pomodoro style timetables available on each form group’s Google Classroom for students to plan out their personal revision at home.

We hope that parents/carers find this page as helpful as our students. Students should let their tutors know if they have any questions.
