Revision Support

Revision is a vital part of achievement in exams. At Wrotham School, each year group sits yearly exams in every subject with Year 11, 12 and 13 sitting public GCSE and A level exams.

Exams are becoming a significantly more important part of a students overall mark and, from 2017 most subjects will be 100% examination. This means that we will be working hard to ensure our students achieve the best exam results possible.

Whilst we do all we can at the school to provide outstanding and targeted lessons, revision sessions outside of school hours and provide support materials; students will not achieve their full potential without revising.

Students tell us that a lack or revision is the single biggest cause of poor performance in exams. This is often the biggest regret of students who have left the school at the end of year 11 or 13, many wish they would have revised more. In some cases, poor revision can lower an overall grade by 2-3 levels.

On this page you can find useful links to websites that help with revision at all levels. We encourage all students and parents to use this guidance to prepare and manage a thorough revision schedule during exam periods and are happy to offer further support in planning this if needed (please contact Mrs Kelvie – tkelvie@wrotham.kent.sch.uk)
