At WHS, we are always striving to ensure pupils become more independent learners and for them to take responsibility for their own learning and revision. We also want to ensure that each pupil feels able and supported in this.
As such, we have devised a Woodchurch Revision Guide to offer strategies and advice to pupils on how to prepare for assessments and exams.
The Revision Guide has now been launched with all pupils in Years 10 and 11.
As part of the WHS Agreement, you have already signed to ensure that your son / daughter / ward is supported at home with this.
At this important time in the lives of our senior pupils, we are appealing for your full support and attention to your child/ward's independent study and exam preparation.
There is always work to do and all pupils are aware of this. Please do not accept any responses which contradict this.
I have attached a copy of The Revision Guide for your information.
Thank you for your continued support.

Pupils' attainment is significantly above national averages in English, geography, history and religious education and above the national average in mathematics.
The percentage of pupils who gained five or more GCSE grade A* to C in English and mathematics was above the national average in 2015. The percentage of pupils gaining five or more GCSEs grade A* to grade G has consistently been above national averages for three years.
Pupils' expected progress in English and mathematics was above national averages in 2015.
Leaders have taken effective action to narrow the gap between the achievement of pupils who are disadvantaged and other pupils in the school and nationally. Gaps in English are closing more rapidly than in mathematics.
Teaching assistants are well deployed to support the needs of pupils. Teachers and support staff know their pupils well and anticipate their needs so that barriers to learning are removed.
Teachers benefit from regular scheduled professional development opportunities.
Leaders ensure that assessments are rigorously and frequently implemented across the curriculum to establish the depth of pupil's understanding.
You have developed an effective careers education and guidance programme. This results in a high proportion of pupils successfully continuing in education, training or employment after Year 11.
Parents who completed Ofsted's online questionnaire, Parent View, agree that their child is well looked after. Parents hold teachers and leaders of the school in high regard and recognise the efforts made to ensure that their children thrive and achieve.
Pupils' behaviour and their attitudes to learning are good. Teachers consistently uphold the behaviour policy and this promotes an environment where pupils can enjoy learning.
