"I think the support that I received was much needed at the time because if you get disappointing results it is easy to get discouraged. Through the sessions the confidence I had in myself increased and this meant that I felt I could do my exams."

Fiona - Year 12 Student


Frances Green has worked in education for over 25 years and has also been a member of the Board of Governors of a local Primary School for 10 years, being Vice Chair or Chair for 8 years. She holds an MSc from Aberystwyth University and wrote her dissertation on the Changing Status of Adolescent Females in Post War Society – as reflected in the pages of their comics and magazines. This looked closely at adolescence and youth culture and changing expectations among teenage girls and was also the starting point for investigating teenagers and self esteem.

Revision & Exams

Disappointing results?

Start the new year with a new plan and feel more confident and in control of your learning. Enjoy revision! Does this sound too far fetched? It’s true, if you are not enjoying learning, you are probably not engaging with your work. The first step is to understand how you learn and then you can start to build a portfolio of techniques which work for YOU.
