Year 10 revision guides

Earlier in the year there was an opportunity to purchase Science revision guides for Year 10 students through the Academy. We are pleased to be able to repeat the opportunity but with the addition of French, Geography and Business Studies.

The order form can be viewed here Year 10 revision guides 

The use of a revision guide specific to their course would be hugely beneficial towards the final year of GCSE work. We expect the guides to be delivered before the end of the summer term therefore allowing students to keep up with some revision during the summer holidays!!
