Easter – A time for Eggs and Exam prep!

easter revisionAlthough Easter is a time for family, relaxing, and perhaps a little excess chocolate and hot cross buns, there will also be many minds turning towards revision for upcoming tests and exams in the summer term. From SATs to GCSEs and A levels, there will be many preparing to search back through revision materials and past work to find the key to unlock great results. We are sure your school has already been offering every bit of help you can think of. Easter revision groups, online tuition, and even SATs residentials are all happening this Easter holiday.

 

There are a couple of ways you could use your school website to help with the exam prep necessary. Below we have shared a number of links relevant for some key subjects and year groups which you could add to your website so that students can find relevant, and importantly, good quality revision for their subjects. If you don’t want to copy them all to a page in your website simply share this blog in one of your news items!

 

You could also add revision timetables to your school website, and add the exam dates and times to the school online calendar to ensure no student has a last minute midnight panic about times when there is no-one available to ask! You could even add in compulsory rest days or times into the calendar – or suggested bedtimes – if you felt the need to remind your students to take their noses out of their books for some added rest and relaxation too.
