Revision Materials:

  • There ARE revision guides available, but none that we use in school -  however if you do choose to purchase one please ensure it is accredited by OCR themselves (there is usually a little sign or stamp somewhere on the front cover)
  • What we suggest is using the specially designed ‘Learning Tables’ for each topic which will be available to download from the VLE. 


Guided/Assisted Time for Students:

  • Intervention for Psychology will be on a Wednesday after school – it runs until around 4:20pm each week
  • These intervention sessions will consist of exam practice that corresponds specifically with the needs of any students who turn up; it is their time, so they get to select topics of choice
  • There are also multiple opportunities for students to ‘book’ time with the members of staff in the department (e.g. lunchtimes) but it is up to the student to organise themselves and arrange this with a staff member ahead of time
