Independent Learning and Revision Guidance

Students at Post 16 aim to complete a minimum of one hour of independent learning for each hour of taught input. Post 16 timetables include up to 8 hours of Independent Study time in year 12, and up to 10 in year 13. Add in an hour a day at home or after school in the study pods, and you've got this!

This sounds like a lot, but actually it's the same as an average working week and , if you plan well, you can organise it so most of it gets done in the school day, leaving you plenty of time for fun, family and fresh air.

Below are some guides to how you can use your independent study time effectively.
