How to Support My Child's Progress

Please see the Curriculum Overview page on our website for the topics that each year group study each half term. These are helpful to guide independent revision and practice and should be used in conjunction with the below resources. 

What resources are available to support learning from home? 

There are many resources and online platforms that we subscribe to that students should use to complete homework and supplement their independent learning. In the event of an unexpected school closure (e.g. adverse weather), staff would also utilise the below online platforms for students to complete remote learning. 

Students also have access to their exercise books in order to review previous learning. Using a combination of resources, students can work on building up revision materials such as flash cards or mind maps to help quiz themselves.  

  • GCSE and A Level Revision Guides

    Year 10 and 11 GCSE Revision Guides

    A Level students can find the guides in the updated course handbook available on the sixth form section of the website

  • Seneca Learning - All year groups and subjects

    As a school, we have signed up to Seneca Premium, an online learning platform to support students learning at home. The software is specifically designed to support students with their learning at school and aligns closely with many examination courses at GCSE and A-Level. Access is free for all students. It is also possible to use Seneca Learning in order to review past topics and practice current topics by using the search function.

    To access this software, please follow the steps below:

    1) On an internet browser, go to

    2) On another tab, students should sign on to Office365 with their school email and password. 

    3) Return to Seneca and click ‘Login’. Students should then select "Log in with Microsoft". If students are prompted to log in with a password the first time this will be Seneca2020. If this does not work, students should access their accounts using the ‘forgot my password’ link. Students must use their school email address to access content.

    4)  Students will then be able to search content specific to the courses that they are studying to ensure that their home study is fully aligned with what they are learning in school. Many teachers will be uploading specific courses and assignments to Seneca and it may be used as a homework tool. To create a parent account which links to your child’s account, please follow the instructions available at:

    Please ensure your child has access to the following equipment every day in order to access their learning.

Students should also have access to a scientific calculator each day (the following have all the functions students will need in KS4 and KS5 Casio 85GT CW, Casio 85GT X, Casio fx991EX, Casio 83GT CW or Casio fx991 CW).

    All of this equipment is available to buy with cash from the school reception during break and lunchtimes apart from the scientific calculators.

  • What else can I do to help guide my child’s learning?

    Other advice on supporting and engaging with your child’s learning include:

    • Ensure your child is ready to learn before the start of the school day. This includes making sure your child is awake, has had breakfast and has their exercise books, equipment and a water bottle.
    • Make sure your child has a distraction-free environment to complete homework. This can include keeping background noises to a minimum, ensuring your child has turned off their notifications on personal devices and is not getting distracted by other people.
    • Have a routine in order to complete homework or revision so that all work can be completed within a particular timeframe, allowing for downtime each day.
    • Regularly asking your child the following questions will help you connect with their learning.
      • What lessons did you have today?
      • What have you been learning in your lesson?
      • What work have you produced?
      • What homework do you need to complete?
    • Discussing your child’s goals with them can help them stay focused when revising for examinations.
