Half Term Revision Sessions

As GCSE exams are fast approaching, your child should now be dedicating time to revision. Alsager School are running several optional revision sessions during half term to support your child in the run up to March mocks and the exams in the summer.  Some of these sessions will take place in school (students should sign in at reception) and others will be on Teams so your child can revise from the comfort of their own home.  They will be sent an invite on Teams and/or will be able to find the class on their Teams Calendar. 

If you require any further guidance or advice on how to support your child please follow the link to our websitehttps://www.alsagerschool.org/exam-and-revision-techniques/ or please get in touch. 

Kind regards,
