Revision Resources and Amended Time for an Excellent Grade 7+ Online Masterclass

Attached to this message you will find a flyer with details of an excellent opportunity for Year 11 students across the Trust aiming for a grade 7 or better in GCSE Maths. These, hour long, sessions are led by a highly experienced examiner and provide a useful boost. They take place every Thursday from 4:30 pm (a change to the earlier start time of 4pm) and can be accessed at home, or if students wish to stay in school after other revision sessions they can join from room 104.

There are also resources for all subjects and a copy of our other after school sessions available at

Have a wonderful weekend.
