In order to support students with their revision for the summer 2024 GCSEs and A-levels our secondary English, maths and science specialist advisers will be offering parents and schools a range of support to help ensure that students realise their potential in next summer’s exams.

 

2024 AQA GCSE English Literature

Designed to motivate and challenge students in an engaging and focused learning environment, our remote revision masterclasses will help boost students’ skills and confidence.

These popular remote Saturday revision sessions return for the third year. Our online masterclasses are led by highly experienced subject specialists and will focus on:

  • Supporting your child to feel ‘exam ready’
  • Providing students with tried and tested exam strategies and revision techniques
  • Sharing high quality responses and model answers to support their learning
  • Directly responding to any text/exam related questions that students may have.

Each session lasts two hours and students will be able to interact with the subject teachers delivering the session. A time-limited recording of each session will also be made available in the week following the session.

Schools can book individuals on to places via the HFL Hub. Bulk student places can be booked by schools by emailing training@hfleducation.org

GCSE Mathematics

Mathematics revision workshops

Following the success of last year’s programme, our secondary Maths advisers will be leading 24 topic-based online workshops during February and March: 12 for Foundation Tier and 12 for Higher Tier.

The Foundation Tier workshops will be aimed at those students aiming to gain Grades 4 and 5. The Higher Tier workshops will be for those aiming for Grades 6 and 7, although students aiming for higher grades may find them useful to consolidate earlier learning.

Designed to motivate and challenge students in an engaging and active learning environment, our remote workshops will provide students with the opportunity to take part in a number of focused revision activities, and to complete exam-style questions.

Each workshop will be 50 minutes long. Students may wish to attend two or three consecutively, with a short break in between each. A time-limited recording of each session will also be made available in the week following the session.

The popularity of these workshops in the past few years means we are able to offer each workshop at £6 (including VAT). We believe this represents excellent value for money,

Mathematics revision workbooks for students

Designed to encourage independent working, these four revision GCSE Maths workbooks have been written to go alongside students’ work and revision in school. They will work well with any of the exam board GCSE (9-1) specifications and can be used in the classroom and / or at home. The workbooks aim to support students in making the best use of the revision time. The topics selected appear frequently in GCSE papers - students who work carefully and successfully through a workbook will have a good chance of achieving the target grade for that book. 

Some students may also wish to work through a lower-grade book, to remind them of key areas they may not have studied recently.

Each full colour book costs £7.95 (plus postage and packing) and can be ordered from the HFL Shop by both parents and schools.

The graded maths revision workbooks were brilliant. Really helpful for our targeted grade intervention. The students and intervention tutor commented to me about how clear and accessible they were so thank you.

  • Giving your child the opportunity to complete a range of revision activities during the session, addressing the skills needed

Maths 'A'-level

Following the success of last year’s programme, our secondary Maths adviser will be leading 16 topic-based ‘A’-level Maths online workshops during the Easter holidays.

Each workshop will summarise the main learning points and show how they can be applied to examination-style questions. Students will be encouraged to participate by answering questions via polls or online chat, engaging actively with the examples used, and taking part in other short revision activities.

The workshops are aimed at those students targeting grades up to and including Grade B. Students aiming for A* and A grades will be welcome to attend, and may appreciate the chance to consolidate their skills; however, the content of the workshops will not specifically be aimed at these students.

Each workshop will be 60 minutes long. Students may wish to attend two or three consecutively, with a short break between each.

Schools can book individuals on to places via the HFL Hub. Bulk student places can be booked by schools by emailing training@hfleducation.org
