Study Support / Revision

The Staff at the Marvell college are dedicated to ensuring that every pupil has the opportunity to reach their full potential. To support this the school day for year 11 pupils will finish at 4pm. This allows us to include a 6th period which is focused on examination preparation.

Period 6 lessons are compulsory and a normal part of the school day for Year 11 students run by specialist staff. These lessons give the students time to delve deeper into their GCSE studies and revise content covered in previous years.

The table below will explain which lesson they need to attend, this is done on a rota to allow all subjects to deliver lessons. Should any year 11 pupil be unsure about which lesson to attend at any point, then please see your year team who will support you.

In addition to revision and preparation in school, we also expect that pupils reflect our ARC values in their home revision. In order to support this please find links to general and subject specific revision materials below.
