After School Revision

As you will be aware, GCSE exams loom ever closer and staff at school are keen to offer our students extra opportunities for revision and support to ensure they do as well as you can in the summer series. Please find below the sessions available this term.

We strongly encourage all students to attend as many evenings as they can; these will form the basis for good revision and study skill habits. However, students are expected to work independently at home in addition to these hours; we would expect Year 11 students to be studying for at least two hours a night from now until the end of term in addition to homework.

  • My time at Beacon Hill provided a massive range of opportunities which have proved valuable not only whilst studying at sixth form and when applying to university, but also in everyday life.
    Former student, 12 A*-C grade GCSEs
  • When I left Beacon Hill I had a career path in mind; I wanted to teach. This was down to 5 brilliant years at the school. I was inspired by my teachers who encouraged and supported me to believe in myself and my abilities.
