Physical Revision Guides
The school can acquire revision guides and workbooks at a discounted price for students/parents/carers to purchase. These are available to buy through our online payments system, SCOPAY. Please contact the Finance Office if you need a link code for SCOPAY or email email@example.com If you are unsure of which revision guide your child needs, please contact the individual subject teacher. We can support parents whose children are eligible for free school meals by providing a further discount. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information if this applies to your child.
Coping with Exam Stress
We recognise that the period leading up to the examinations can be a stressful time for both students and parents. We offer extensive support and guidance throughout this crucial period. Please see below a link to the Department For Education’s guidance on coping with exam stress.
If you are concerned about your child’s mental health in the lead up to the exams, please contact your GP and make the school aware by contacting your child’s Learning Support Officer in the first instance.
