'Maximising Success' is a great investment/early intervention which:
- Level sets and ensures ALL pupils have the ability to revise effectively and enjoyably
- Makes a positive difference to attainment and progress throughout their school career (including GCSEs and Progress 8)
- Gets pupils motivated and into good working habits e.g. proactive revision throughout the year
- Reduces stress and anxiety for tests/exams
During this fun and active two-hour workshop (suitable for small, whole-year or half-year groups), pupils explore THREE principles of effective learning and TWELVE different revision techniques. They leave the session feeling better motivated and empowered, having chosen three or four preferred revision techniques.
‘Maximising Success’ can also be supplemented by an additional one hour briefing for staff which helps staff to revisit the principles of effective and enjoyable revision, understand the twelve different revision techniques and agree how they can best reinforce the techniques in the classroom.
We know from regular feedback that pupils leave 'Maximising Success' feeling more positive about revision and better equipped to achieve their best in their exams.
