AQA GCSE English Revision Workshops

The Secondary English team at Herts for Learning have decided to run three hour sessions focused on individual literature exam texts and individual language papers, on Saturday mornings, starting on the 17th February as well as the full-day courses running in the Easter holidays.

These sessions are designed to be booked by parents who are looking for ways to support their children, and would be in addition to support being offered in schools. Please note that schools also have the option to book students onto the sessions.

These revision workshops will:

  • enable children to feel ‘exam ready’
  • be delivered by subject experts, following the very latest guidance and advice from AQA
  • provide each participant with exam strategies and guidance on how to succeed in each exam paper
  • give pupils the opportunity to complete a range of revision activities, addressing the skills needed with immediate feedback

For further information on these workshops, view the flyer.
