Supporting Study

Parental Support

In terms of support, it is very helpful if parents discuss with their children what has to be covered in different subjects, the materials that the pupils have to work from and the key strategies that they are using for revision.

In Personal Support, all pupils have been introduced to study planning, and have been encouraged to share this process with parents. The trick for parents is finding the delicate balance between putting on enough pressure to encourage a realistic time scale for revision while avoiding putting on too much pressure, when the pupils can see revision as an impossible task.

Information and Advice

If you are worried about revision issues, please contact your child’s House office to discuss the problems and for any advice on supporting preparation for the exams in May.
