In order to help our pupils revise and our parents to support revision at home, the English Department would like to share this guide to effective revision.


The first half of the guide looks at effective strategies and ways to approach revision to add the most value.   It focuses on six strategies:

  • Spacing
  • Retrieval Practice
  • Interleaving
  • Elaboration
  • Concrete Examples
  • Dual Coding


The second part suggests lots of English specific activities and areas to focus on.  This section could be also be useful when creating a revision plan. 

We hope this guide will be helpful to pupils and parents and would like to wish everyone a happy Easter break!   See you next term!
