Bourne Grammar School pupils ready for exam success

Have your say

A school is making sure its pupils are prepared for their exams with breakfasts and revision sessions.

Bourne Grammar School has ditched its old practice of sending Year 11 pupils on study leave ahead of their GCSE exams.

Instead, the school now runs a six-week programme of in-school revision.

Each day begins with a free breakfast served in the school’s cafe.

This year the revision programme has been further developed to include active and silent revision sessions, PE lessons and mindfulness - a new wellbeing initiative that includes relaxation techniques to help students remain calm and focused.

Headteacher Jonathan Maddox said: “A great deal rides on the outcome of GCSE, AS and A2 examinations.

“Students appreciate the support that we offer and many report that the routine established by the programme is helping them to make the absolute most of their revision time before each exam”
